Deft lawyer Thomas Farrell (ROBERT TAYLOR) has found himself a role successfully defending the crooked goons of crime boss Rico Angelo (LEE J. COBB). When Thomas meets glamorous dancer Vicki Gaye (CYD CHARISSE), he falls in love with her. Vicki makes Thomas realize that he should stop representing criminals, and he tries to break ties with Angelo. However, the mobster will not let Thomas free and kidnaps Vicki in order to keep the lawyer in his employ.

VIDEO – 4¾/5, AUDIO – 4½/5

Party Girl arrives on Blu-ray through the Warner Archive Collection and is presented with a 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and given a new 1080p high-definition transfer. As with many other Warner catalogue titles, this one also looks excellent showcasing sharp detail throughout and colors are bright and vibrant without appearing oversaturated. Now there were a few (very) minor specs that I only noticed in preparation for this review and getting screen captures, but while watching nothing that was apparent.

The disc comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track, which is standard for the older Warner Archive releases. In any case, this one sounds good with clear dialogue levels throughout and some decent enough depth during the musical numbers.
