The 2023 Blu-ray of Blonde Ice is compared to this DVD HERE


There're critically acclaimed film noirs that have books analysing every aspect of them. Then, there's something like Blonde Ice. It is also film noir, but being made on cheap with unknown actors, the film was lost for generations. It's up to film historians and collectors, like Jay Fenton to uncover these little gems. Blonde Ice is a talky melodrama, staged in stuffy rooms, going outside only once or twice. Thankfully, we have Leslie Brooks who steals the film as the title character. She is no Phyllis Dietrichson of Double Indemnity - she can kill off rich husbands herself, and when everything goes wrong, can frame her lover. Like the tagline says, "ICE in her veins - ICICLES in her heart"

The 2023 Blu-ray of Blonde Ice is compared to this DVD HERE

For a film thought to be lost, the image is very good. There are a few problem spots, like the last capture, but they are rare. In some spots, the image is too soft, but mostly it is fine with very nice film grain. The sound is adequate, but often hiss and pops creep in. There's a nice array of extras including a commentary by Jay Fenton, an interview with Jay Fenton and 2 short subjects. A nice liner notes by Jay Fenton round off the package.
