White Heat looks great in HD,
This review is from: Ultimate Gangsters Collection: Classics (Little Caesar / The Public Enemy / The Petrified Forest / White Heat [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I bought the Blu-ray of "White Heat" separately, but since it's included in this set, I figured I'd post a comment here.
The picture quality of the "White Heat" Blu-ray is very much improved over the DVD (maybe a 15% improvement to my eyes), and that's saying something since the DVD was already pretty good. There's a tremendous amount of detail revealed in nearly every scene. The blu-ray unveils the textures of skin, clothing, furniture, and machinery to very good effect, making the film more lifelike.
There is one shot in the opening sequence (during the train robbery) that has poor image quality, but that was true on the DVD as well. Perhaps it looked that way originally.
Audio quality may have improved, but I didn't notice a great change from the DVD.
Overall I am very pleased with the Blu-ray of "White Heat," and consider the upgrade wotth the cost.
I look forward to reading what others have to say about the 3 remaining films in this set.

These blu-rays are the same transfers used on the old dvds.The reason why the picture looks a little better is because of Blu-ray, these should of been remastered for Blu-ray not just ported over from the old dvds, with the same special features that are on the old dvds.If people didn't own the old dvds of these films then it might make sense to buy them on Blu-ray.UNIVERSAL home video has remasters of there films on Blu-ray while WARNER just takes the old stuff and think that no one will notice.
