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)
Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
