The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD has a dated appearance with colors that are rich, but undefined with slightly brownish fleshtones. Some scenes appear a bit hazy and smeared, while others are generally sharp. Background definition is wanting. Dirt and artifacts are evident throughout. Minor pixelization is apparent, but the occasional shimmer or edge enhancement does not distract. Overall, a generally mediocre DVD picture, but undoubtedly the best the picture has looked on home video.

I count on Widescreen Review to keep me informed on any and all new information in the world of home theatre more than any other source. I also base many of my DVD purchases on the review of the picture and sound of a particular DVD. I always look forward to finding Widescreen Review in my mailbox!
