DVD jacket erroneously indicates non-anamorphic widescreen format.
From 1969, Topaz may be one of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD (mislabeled as being non-anamorphic on the packaging) exhibits a picture that should surely please for its age. Source element artifacts are noticed throughout, but are minimal compared to the stock footage in the opening scenes. Film grain is revealed throughout. The picture is quite solid, with images that are sharp and nicely detailed. Though dated, colors are nicely saturated with rich hues and generally deep blacks. Fleshtones are a bit reddish at times. Edge enhancement is the most prominent distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)
I love all the DVD and D-VHS reviews! I also love all the letters from people like me telling the truth about everything. Also, I canít get enough of hi-def info on everything. I can't wait for the next issue! Keep up the good work!
