The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD (mislabeled as being non-anamorphic on the packaging) exhibits a picture that should surely please for its age. Source element artifacts are noticed throughout, but are minimal compared to the stock footage in the opening scenes. Film grain is revealed throughout. The picture is quite solid, with images that are sharp and nicely detailed. Though dated, colors are nicely saturated with rich hues and generally deep blacks. Fleshtones are a bit reddish at times. Edge enhancement is the most prominent distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)
