Our first look at this NTSC edition, with its full-frame, natural-speed video transfer from very-good to excellent 35mm print materials, is generally pleasing viewing on high-definition as well as standard television systems.

The film is accompanied by a music score by Eric le Guen.

At first blush, we enthusiastically recommended this three-disc Jacques Feyder set.
