Ratings (1-10): video: 6 / audio: 5 / additional content: 4 / overall: 5.

This edition has been mastered from a good to very-good 16mm reduction print, which is reasonably broad range of greytones and image detail. The print slightly flickers with exposure fluctuations. The sound-speed video transfer is OK.

The film is accompanied by the synchronized orchestral music and sound effects soundtrack from the rerelease source print.
