TOP 500 REVIEWERon 2 October 2013
A splendid transfer of a tight little Hitchcock-like thriller which still works well. The town of Niagara is as much a "character" as the rest of the cast in Henry Hathaway's impressively directed tale of betrayal and revenge. Joseph Cotton gives a typically first rate performance as a husband more sinned against than sinning while Monroe - all tight dresses, scarlet lips and pouting looks - is sensational, iconic (and in terms of the 21st Century faintly ludicrous) as the embodiment of female treachery and sensuality. It's a great little movie, filled with nice details and the "travelogue" element is fascinating too. The blu ray transfer is outstanding - great contrast - eye popping colours - terrific detail - and the audio is even more impressive with the 5.1 immersive dub than the previous DVD too. Because the original poster had Marilyn stretched out over the falls ( "two forces of nature") one almost expects CinemaScope - but no - the film was shot in a 4x3 Academy ratio which had thankfully been retained for this transfer. Still it all looks very spectacular and on big screen video projection rather thrilling as the FX and blu-screen work are surprisingly good for 1954. The only extra is however the black and white trailer for the film - and this omission is a little disappointing as more extras would have been gratefully received. The film itself is definitely a treat for a wet Sunday afternoon though and this edition is highly recommended!
