Hi-Def Hitch ‘North by Northwest’ by Way of Blu-ray

Jan-Feb 2010   Alfred Hitchcock turns Blu this holiday season with Warner Home Video’s 50th Anniversary Edition of North by Northwest, which overcame severe yellow-layer fading, thanks to a $1 million digital restoration by Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI).  This landmark Blu-ray release definitely has bluer color, along with overall greater resolution and detail, due to the 8K Northlight scan of the original VistaVision camera negative and 8-perf separation masters, with a 4K capture and 4K completion.
