This DVD-R edition has transferred full-frame from a high-quality 35mm print, but there are a number of moments of distracting nitrate print decomposition. As this may well be the only surviving 35mm print material of this film, we must accept the print as is since it is better to be able to view the film is this condition rather than not at all.
The film is accompanied by the same piano music score that accompanied the film’s broadcast on Turner Classic Movies.
Note that some collectors have experienced difficulties playing some DVD-R discs from the Warner Archive Collection. We experienced no problems with this disc on our main Blu-ray Disc reviewing player or on the DVD drive in our Macintosh computer.
