Odds Against Tomorrow (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Robert Wise
Directed by four-time Oscar®-winner Robert Wise (I Want to Live!, West Side Story, Odds Against Tomorrow is a high-suspense story of a daring heist gone awry.
Embittered ex-cop Dave Burke (Ed Begley) enlists ruthless killer Earle Slater (Robert Ryan, The Dirty Dozen) and gambling musician Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte) to rob an upstate New York bank. Trouble unfolds however when, fuelled by racist hatred, Earle clashes with Johnny and the planned heist spirals into chaos, leading to a violent climactic confrontation.
With its exceptional jazz score, acerbic social commentary and atmospheric visual style, Odds Against Tomorrow is a high point in the Film Noir canon, and one of the most important films of its era to address racism.

I would say NO. If you already have this SD version, I would stick with it and not double-dip for the BFI Blu ray.
There are TONS of specks, scratches and constantly flickering damage spots that simply were left alone. The SD looks about the same. The Blu ray even has blisteringly savage frame damage during several scene transitions, they are only a split second long but... C'MON! This is SUPPOSED to be a Blu ray which should be WAY above SD... it is NOT. Audio MAY be improved but only marginally.
An incredibly awesome film - locations, directing, musical performances, screenplay, lighting, cinematography etc WOW! It could have been done with much more care and restoration... sadly, it wasn't.
With over 200 minutes of Special Features and a booklet adding substantial insight to a noir that’s truly outstanding, this adds up to a fine package from BFI.
