  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
When Britain

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD shows qualities of a source much older than it is, with poor black levels, relatively heavy grain and noise, dated-looking colors, and noticeable source element artifacts. While black levels can be fairly deep at times, night scenes can look washed-out with poor definition in the shadows. Colors have a desaturated appearance and fleshtones look pallid. Resolution is fairly sharp, but there are times when the image can have a digitized appearance. Edge enhancement is not much of a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
