Despite some discouraging reviews here, I must say this BD is worth the upgrade from DVD! Image may not be perfect but it is fairly good. I have checked the BD against the DVD and it really is a BIG step up picturewise!
This BD release shouldn't be blamed for the very few limitations that the source material had. It's interesting to hear what George Lucas had to say in his video commentaries (= GLvc) on this.
I'm sure American Graffiti has never looked better in home theatres. Enjoy!

When it comes to picture quality one has to keep in mind that
- the film was shot in "Techniscope" (i.e. 2 perforation holes instead of 4, as in "Cinemascope" ) hence cutting stock costs in half - unfortunately same goes for picture resolution. Therefore a slightly lesser picture quality than in usual Cinemascope Blu-ray transfers is the result. (GLvc TC 00:14:40)
- shot mostly with 'available light' camera operators had difficulties to stay in focus (-> 'depth of field') e.g. TC 00:02:05; 00:03:24-31; 00:12:15 (GLvc 00:11:28, 00:39:48)
- fortunately they kept the DNR mallet in the box and the transfer shows some decent healthy grain in very good images e.g. 00:10:52; 00:12:33; 00:14:47.
- unfortunately some edge enhancement is visible here and there (e.g.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Anyone who grew up in the fifties and sixties can identify with this picture. The North American obssession with cars that transcends their function as transportation and makes them into little shrines
to freedom and individuality is still alive today. The anecdotes of actors, director and producer adds insight into the way that this movie still reminds me of my youth.

the only known star in this movie at the time of its release was Ron Howard who had pretty much vanished from the public eye after Andy Giffith. They all became household names, Suzanne Summers, Cindy Williams, Paul Le Mat, Richard Dreyfus, Harrison Ford and of course writer/director George Lucas. When we saw this movie at the theatre during its original release the entire audience was laughing before the opening credits had finished rolling.
