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 #65 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it is an informative source on A/V equipment and entertainment. The many excellent reviews on DVDs (and Laser Discs, back in the day), as well as surround music, have led me to some real gems!
