  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In For Love Of Ivy, the Austin family

DVD Picture:
The non-anamorphic 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is dated, but colors are well balanced with full saturation. Fleshtones are nicely rendered, and blacks are deep and solid. Images are sharp, but fine detail and definition are wanting. Edge enhancement and distracting aliasing problems create distracting shimmer in the picture, but otherwise images can be quite solid. Minor source element artifacts are apparent. Overall, the picture is mediocre at best. (Suzanne Hodges)

The DVD soundtrack is Dolby
