This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print, but the video transfer is a little grey and flat, with a persistent bluriness that has to be a combination of the source print and the low-resolution video transfer.

The film is accompanied by orchestral music compiled from preexisting recordings.

Not a great edition but . . . hey! . . . this is the only known DVD home video edition of this rarely-seen Mary Pickford film.
