2012 DVD edition

The Coast Patrol (1925), black & white, 65 minutes, not rated.

Alpha Home Entertainment, ALP 6757D, UPC 0-89218-67579-8.
Full-frame 4:3 NTSC, one single-sided, single-layered DVD-R disc, Region 0, ? Mbps average video bit rate, ? kbps audio bit rate, Dolby Digital 2.0 mono sound, English language intertitles, no foreign language subtitles, chapter stops, standard DVD keepcase, $7.98.
Release date: 17 April 2012.
Country of origin: USA

This edition has been mastered from a good 16mm reduction print that is soft in image detail. The old, natural-speed, analog full-frame video transfer loses highlight details in some of the film’s brighter shots.

The film is accompanied by a soundtrack compiled from preexisting (low-fidelity) recordings.

An OK edition, but we still suspect that, even though we haven’t viewed it, the Grapevine Video edition noted above will still be of better quality.
