THE ODESSA FILE
(Ronald Neame, 1974)
Release date: 20 August 2018
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

Hamburg 1963. German journalist Jon Voight (Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance, Coming Home) finds himself in possession of a diary detailing the unspeakable crimes of cruelty, torture and mass murder perpetrated by an SS captain, now veiled as a top industrialist. Neame’s compelling mix of conspiracy thriller and action-adventure, adapted from Frederick Forsyth’s bestseller, is a fine addition to the post-war spy thriller genre, and features an outstanding performance from Voight and glorious location photographed by the great Oswald Morris (Lolita, The Pumpkin Eater).

Actually, they're not. It's just that the more recent grabs on that page are decoded incorrectly with the wrong YCbCr->RGB matrix. Hopefully they eventually notice that every single new grab they're doing has "warmer skin tones and deeper reds and greens". The colour on the Indicator disc is exactly as it is in the master and the same is probably true of the Image BD.

Get in touch with info@powerhousefilms.co.uk and they'll sort you out.

Unfortunately, thanks to a manufacturing error, a few copies went out without booklets.
