This edition of Splash Yourself has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction rerelease print from Hollywood Film Enterprises. The full-frame video transfer reproduces the source material well, but there’s a limit to the picture detail in an older 16mm print. The disc master shows some compression artifacts, but it’s nothing to get distraught over.

The presentation features musical accompaniment performed on an electric organ by Bob Vaughn.

This OK edition is collectable until a better home video edition is produced.
