The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits image quality that is quite lovely. Colors are easy-on-the-eyes, with accurate fleshtones, well-balanced hues and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with good contrast and shadow delineation. Overall the picture is very nicely rendered, with little edge enhancement and occasionally noticed shimmering in the finer details. At times, film grain is revealed from the source element, but overall the image is solid. (Suzanne Hodges)
