This budget edition has been mastered from from a 16mm reduction print produced by Hollywood Film Enterprises. The print is contrasty, with blasted-out highlights and plugged-up shadows, and flecked with dust and scratches.
The film is accompanied by a hokey music score composed and performed on synthesizer by Don Kinnier. Embarassing.
Once again collectors will make a compromise between chucking away their low-quality VHS videotape copy of Tarzan of the Apes and acquiring a high-quality digital home video edition that is really worth collecting. This cheapy edition is barely an upgrade.
