The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a satisfying picture for the film's age. Images are generally sharp and detailed, though an occasional soft focus is used for close-ups on the actresses.

I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
