Updating the popular Shakespeare, Love
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a generally pleasing picture, with colors that are well balanced, but often undefined. Other times, hues exhibit slight oversaturation, with slightly orange fleshtones. The picture is quite soft throughout, with images appearing hazy and smeared. While intended to look like a 1930s-style musical (a quote from the DVD packaging), the softness is nonetheless distracting. The black-and-white scenes exhibit a good gray scale, and are soft and stylized to resemble stock footage. Source element artifacts are noticed throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
