The 50th Anniversary Edition is 'restored in 4K from 8K scans of original 65 mm elements with 96 K resolution and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio'.
This version was truly a joy to watch,listen and appreciate what a great musical this is.
The print is pristine,the audio is crystal clear and booming and there is a whole separate disc of extras.
This musical comedy features fantastic show tunes by the talented Broadway songwriting duo Learner and Loewe. The film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1964 and Best Director, George Cukor. Harrison and Hepburn are captivating in their roles.
I have heard, although I don't know if it is true, that Hepburn's vocal skills required that her singing for the film be dubbed. Still one of the best musicals ever made.
I can see and almost feel the textures of the fabrics. Pure visual fidelity. Haven't seen a re-mastering done so well for a long time.
The 2015 50th Anniversary re-restoration fixes the issues from the earlier, inferior restoration.
The visual quality is simply stunning.
I don't have a home-theater system, so I can't offer expert opinion about the audio, however, I did experience an initial fluttering or card-shuffling sound with the English 7.1 Dolby TrueHD track. The noise disappeared when I switched to one of the alternate audio tracks (six languages) and then switched back to English.
The packaging is appropriately chic and feels sturdy initially, but the container is made mostly out of card stock, and I suspect it will suffer above-average wear and tear over time.
Unlike earlier releases, I think this edition of "My Fair Lady" truly measures up to Blu-Ray standards.
Finally, the transfer this masterpiece deserves!
This is one of my favorite films. The story is classic, the score is great, the acting is wonderful, and every frame of cinematography is art. Due to the reviews of the previous Blu-ray release, I avoided purchasing it so as not to be disappointed, and made do with my DVD for many years.
Now the restored colors and textures can be seen in their fully visualized glory. I have only dim childhood memories of seeing the film in 1964/5, but one thing I vividly recall is feeling like I was in the rooms with the characters. Watching this disk made me feel that way again. Higgins' library/study with it's ornate, deeply colored woodwork and vivid carpets and furniture. That's my favorite set. The embassy ball, Alfie's pub crawl, the stair cases and halls of 27A Wimpole Street, the list goes on.
This is the transfer we've been waiting for. At some point, I suppose it will be supplanted by 4K, but I'm completely satisfied with this edition until that time comes.
