This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a good to very-good 16mm reduction print.
The film is accompanied by a music score performed on piano, muted in fidelity, that may originate from an analog optical soundtrack in the source print. The piano performance may be by William Perry, which might indicate that the source print was prepared by Paul Killiam in the early 1970s.
