The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture that can be very nicely rendered. Images are generally sharp, with a fair amount of detail, though some scenes appear softly focused. At times, the picture shows little sign of its age. Color fidelity is nicely rendered, with well-balanced fleshtones, and rich hues, but blacks can appear slightly weak at times. Overall, there are some source-related artifacts and film grain noticed. Edge enhancement is apparent at times, as is some minor pixelization, but for its age, the picture should be satisfactory.
