Dr. Peter Carey (JAMES COBURN) moves to Boston, where he becomes a pathologist at a prominent hospital and gets involved with Georgia Hightower (JENNIFER O’NEILL). Soon the teenage daughter (ELIZABETH ALLEN) of the chief doctor comes into the hospital with severe injuries from a failed illegal abortion. After she dies, Carey’s friend, Dr. David Tao (JAMES HONG), is arrested for performing the surgery. Carey knows that Tao is innocent, and he uses forceful detective tactics to determine who is guilty.

Warner Bros. releases The Carey Treatment onto Blu-ray through their Archive Collection line. This received a new 1080p high-definition transfer which looks glorious. Detail is incredibly sharp and well defined throughout and the natural film grain is ever present giving it some nice texture while colors appear to be in line with the time period. I did not notice any significant or obvious signs of artifacting, aliasing or other flaws making for yet another homerun by Warner.

The disc comes with a strong and well balanced DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track showcasing clear dialogue and fine depth for a singular channel with the ambient noises — plenty in the hospital setting — not to mention the score from Roy Budd (1971’s Get Carter, The Stone Killer).
