Sgt. York (1941) Restoration Before And After.

Before. And After.

Warner Archive has released a couple of minutes of Sgt. York (1941) to give us glimpse of what their upcoming Blu-Ray will look like — from a 4K scan of the best surviving 35mm nitrate elements.

Unbelievable. Coming October 13.

    I feel Warner Archive pretty much lead the rest of the pack with their
    gorgeous restorations. Their recent restored versions of UNDERWATER!
    GREAT DAY IN THE MORNING and FLYING LEATHERNECKS are
    stunning; never thought I’d see old RKO films given this sort of care and
    attention……where’s RUN OF THE ARROW guys!
    There are so many vintage Warner Bros films still awaiting restorations,
    including Cagney classics ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES and THE
    ROARING TWENTIES I’m sure they are works in progress if surviving
    elements are ih good shape.
    My “fantasy” Blu Ray three film set would be HIGH SIERRA,
    COLORADO TERRITORY and I DIED A THOUSAND TIMES,all three
    awaiting their high def debut.

    • The level of what we’re seeing these days — from regular transfers to real restorations — is really incredible. DVDs that I used to think were fine are now hard to watch. How quickly folks like Warner Archive are spoiling us!
