    The Kino Lorber 2k bluray of the 1974 The Front Page Directed by Billy Wilder and stars Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau and Susan Sarandon. I watched this recently and decided to pick up a good bluray version. this is USA Region A locked so playing on my oppo which i have set for such, as i have a few reg a's..




    Arriving on Blu-ray in North America for the first time, The Front Page is presented with a 1080p MPEG-4 AVC encoded high definition presentation in the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1 widescreen. Kino Lorber has given the film a generally strong presentation with the source video available. Although it is apparent that the film utilizes a dated master (and is not a fresh scan) it's remarkably clean, clear, and proficient in giving the film a high-definition boost. Scratches and dirt don't ail the print and the appearance of the cinematography is naturally filmic without detriments like DNR. This presentation is one which fully preserves the 35 mm Technicolor image well. While it may have looked somewhat better with a 4K scan, it's nice to see the visual improvements this Blu-ray does offer viewers.
    The film is presented with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono audio soundtrack. This is certainly an impressive sound presentation that has excellent clarity and detail throughout. The dialogue is always clear and easy to understand. The music accompanying the film sounds clear, bright, and impressive. While the film might lack something in the way of bass production and sound-effects throughout the film are minimally used, The Front Page ultimately sounds fine for a film of its age.

    I like Matthau and Lemmon and like them even better together but I didn't really rate The Front Page so much.

    What's that one called where Matthau is a hit man and he gets stuck with Lemmon and they go all over the country? Not seen that in years but I remember it as being brilliant.

    14 on Amazon so that's not happening. 14 for a DVD? Must be out of their tiny minds.
