  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
On November 14, 1970, a plane crashed killing all 75 people onboard. All were members of Huntington, West Virginia

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits deep blacks and appropriately well-saturated colors. Shadow delineation is adequate, but details in the darkest shadows can occasionally be lost into black. Details are captured well, but the delivery of these details is inconsistent, occasionally looking soft and smeared. Contrast is slightly high, but it does generally work well with the presentation, although outdoors the picture can often look unnatural. Edge enhancement can be noticed, especially over high-contrast transitions, and pixel breakup can also be noticed at times throughout. When the picture looks good, it can look very good. Unfortunately, it is also very inconsistent. (Danny Richelieu)
