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 read Widescreen Review because it offers in-depth, techno nerd detail level views and information about technology; integrated with a plain, easy-to-understand newbie explanation. The combination helps keep the inexperienced and experts alike informed, up-to-date, and market aware. Without Widescreen Review, I'd be just another large electronics store item purchasing sheep. Thank you for shepherding me towards the light.
