This new anamorphically enhanced DVD exhibits a picture that is clearly dated, but offering decent sharpness and detail, especially when compared to the 1998-released, non-anamorphic Fox Lorber DVD. Colors have a bit of a subdued appearance, but are consistent throughout, with accurate fleshtones and generally deep blacks. While the Fox Lorber edition has no shortage of distractions in the way of aliasing problems and pixelization, there is only some image breakup and limited edge enhancement on the Anchor Bay DVD. The source element is revealing of some grain and artifacts, but nothing that should seem excessive. Both versions are framed at 2.35:1, although the Fox Lorber version appears slightly zoomed-in when compared to the newer Anchor Bay version. (Suzanne Hodges)
