That wild and crazy guy, Steve Martin, makes his film-starring debut in the wacky comedy The Jerk. Steve portrays Navin Johnson, adopted son of a poor black sharecropper family, whose crazy inventions lead him from rags to riches and right back to rags. Along the way, he’s smitten with a lady motorcycle racer, survives a series of screwball attacks by a deranged killer and becomes a millionaire by inventing the ‘Opti-grab’ handle for glasses. It’s an outrageous comedy with one laugh after another!

There are plenty of older movies that have been re-issued where the studios went back to re-digitize the original film at a higher resolution - two examples would be Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Blazing saddles, both are old movies that look sharper on blu ray than they do on DVD. This one unfortunately is Blur-Vision - it's not sharp, and looks no different than the DVD version. (just look at the tire on the roof in the first scene)
Additionally, just like the DVD version, it has some issues with it's conversion from the 4:3 original to 16:9 widescreen, the gas station scene contains a key gag that happens on the lower 1/4 of the 4:3 screen, The gas station owner makes a hand gesture to Navin, which Navin repeats back (While completely missing the point of the gesture) in the original, you can see both actors perform the gesture, but in the DVD and Blu Ray release, the gesture performed by Jackie Mason is completely clipped off screen.
P.S. Is Grandma still farting?
