The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture with source element artifacts and excessively perceived film grain throughout. The picture is quite dark, and wanting in definition and shadow delineation. The dated colors are satisfactory, though fleshtones can appear a bit brownish at times. While hues are not consistently accurate, they are quite solid throughout. Images are generally sharp, but fine details are limited. A hard-edged quality is created by apparent edge enhancement.
