The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture, but colors are fully saturated at times. Images are generally sharp, but detail is limited. Many scenes in the fishing village have an enhanced appearance, though not always attributed to the processed scenery. Some minor pixelization is noticed. The source element is revealing of artifacts and scratches, as well as film grain. The picture does not hide its age very well, but the transfer is quite good. Compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 21, the DVD picture is sharper, with more fully saturated colors. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #88 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I just started my subscription to your magazine, but I have already seen great potential with some of the features of the Web Site. I sell high-end home theatre equipment and being able to pull up past and current reviews helps me relate to my customerís needs a lot better. I like to be as knowledgeable as possible with today's technologies, and Widescreen Review really has the potential to help me do that. I am looking forward to getting my first issue soon.
