DVD Picture:
Compared to the previously released DVD (reviewed in Issue 29), this new anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture appears quite similar, if cleaned up. Scenes with dirt apparent on the previous DVD appear smoother on this new version. Viewed alone, color fidelity is nicely balanced with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered contrast and shadow delineation. Some scenes appear somewhat soft at times A small amount of edge enhancement is noticed, but should only be obtrusive to pickier viewers. Pixelization is not a problem. (Suzanne Hodges)
