While the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD is a noticeable improvement over the previously released DVD (Issue 55), it still has its issues. Resolution is improved, but, unlike other recently released catalog titles of a similar age, it still appears soft and dated. Black levels are improved but still slightly elevated. Shadow delineation has been improved greatly, with the near-black detail easily discerned. The greatest improvement of this release, though, is in the cleaning of the source element, with dirt and hair completely removed. It is a very clean picture in this regard. Contrast has been improved, with brighter whites (and no blooming). Outdoors, though, the image can still appear washed out.

Compression artifacts can be recognized at times, but edge enhancement has been toned down greatly. (Danny Richelieu)
