The non-anamorphic DVD is a recycled transfer, exhibiting slightly improved clarity over the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 31. Colors are slightly more refined, and not quite as exaggerated. By comparison, black levels are a shade deeper on the DVD. Fine film grain is revealed throughout, but never to the point where it seems excessive. The dated imagery is wanting in definition, appearing a bit "pasty" and lacking clarity. Some edge enhancement is noticed, but the overall image is quite soft. Minor aliasing problems are apparent, as well as some pixelization. While the picture should surely please fans, it is generally mediocre for the DVD format. (Suzanne Hodges)
The soundtrack is Dolby
