The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture looks much better than the previously released non-anamorphic DVD. The black-and-white imagery is haunting with deep blacks, bright whites, and excellent contrast. Images are sharp and nicely textured. The picture is much smoother, while retaining finer details. There is some pixel breakup, but edge enhancement is not a problem with this DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
