This DVD edition has been mastered from a good 16mm reduction print, but the disc appears to have been mastered from a VHS videotape with the low resolution of the format compromising the picture quality.

The films are accompanied by canned music from a variety of audio sources.

One benefit to this low-budget collection is its inclusion of a couple of Mary Pickford films not available yet in high-quality home video editions, and the addition of a film directed by DeMille’s brother, writer and director William C. de Mille.
