This DVD edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print.
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.
