This DVD-R edition is available directly from the Warner Home Video website, as originally prepared for release on laserdisc and for broadcast on Turner Classic Movies from a 16mm reduction print (thought to be the best surviving material). The full-frame video transfer crops out the shadowy edges of the cropped framing of the 16mm print, which cropped the original 35mm framing. Perhaps as much as 10 percent of the original picture is lost to cropping, but intertitles remain readable in full.
The film is accompanied by a modern music score.
