Arrow Academy’s Bluray of Robert Aldrich, James Poe and Clifford Odets‘ The Big Knife popped on 8.28. DVD Beaver screen-capture comparisons show that the Bluray looks much better than the 2003 DVD. The sore spot is the cropping — the Bluray uses a 1.85 cleavered image while the DVD went with a standard mid ’50s boxy format. Consider the comparison framings of a scene between Jack Palance and Shelley Winters [below]. If you think the cleavered Bluray image is preferable, there’s really something wrong with you. Obviously being able to see Palance’s hair and sideburns…either you get it or you don’t.
