We have not viewed the DVD. We have seen some of the films on laserdisc and VHS videotape, and we have seen other DVD releases in this series. Our hipshot opinion of the DVD, sight unseen, is that some films will look very-good (transferred from the original 35mm negatives) and others may be passable at best, usually films transferred from the best surviving material in the possession of Hal Roach Studios.

Read our review of volume three in this series for an idea of what to expect from this release.
