This early DVD edition has been prepared from the 1995 analog video master produced for home video by David Shepard, which was previously released by Kino International on laserdisc and VHS videotape. The incomplete source print shows signs of wear, with scuffing, thin vertical scratches and some abrupt splices.

The film is accompanied by an ensemble music score arranged and conducted by Robert Israel that gives way to a theatre organ music score for the main bout denouement.
