Said video is undoubtedly of much better quality than the God-awful DVD I have.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Neat-o. I would give an arm and a leg for any decent transfer of Charade though - all I've got is a truly awful one.

Sabrina and Funny Face are finally going Blu in the U.S. Robert Harris confirms, Sabrina will be in it's correct widescreen aspect ratio--for the first time, I believe, on a U.S. home video release. Details: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/328339-whv-press-release-sabrina-and-funny-face/

Firstly, surfing around I see comments sprinkled about by those in the know; "Sabrina began production in late September 1953, and Paramount went all wide-screen in mid-March of that year. Their pre-VistaVision wide-screen ratio is 1:66. I understand that the actual aspect ratio of Sabrina was 1.75:1." I have heard the Australian   Blu-ray is 1.33 but I don't know about the European 1080Ps - but I assumed they would be the same as this (1.78:1). This composition finally looks right.   Sabrina  appears pretty sweet in HD.  The image quality shows some grit and minor grain and handsome, solid, contrast. This is dual-layered with a high bitrate and the contrast advances beyond the past SDs. There is a sense of texture in the image and detail can rise to the occasion in close-ups. It has softness but I suspect this is inherent. I thought it looks excellent in-motion and I could see no signs of manipulation. There is not a lot of depth - some in the sailing sequence and other outdoor scenes and I noticed no noise in the darkness in the shadows of the party. This    Blu-ray has a consistent feel. By modern standards this is fairly tame visually but as a representation of the original - I suspect that this    Blu-ray does as good a job as we are likely to get in regards to the film's video.
I'm very much looking forward to seeing this in widescreen.

The new Sabrina blu gets 4.5/5 for video quality at Blu-ray.com. They don't mention the "new" framing, but they provide enough screen caps to give you an idea. All the compositions look correct to me: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Sabrina-Blu-ray/42628/#Screenshots
