Our first look at this NTSC edition, originally produced for home video by Lobster Films, Paris, reveals a full-frame, natural-speed video transfer from a very-good to excellent 35mm source print, restored in 2005 by Lenny Borger and Lobster Films. Tonal ranges are generally broad, with highlight and shadow details well-maintained in this transfer that looks great on standard and high-definition television equipment.

The film is accompanied by a music score by Antonio Coppola, performed by the Octuor de France.

At first blush, this three-disc Jacques Feyder set is enthusiastically recommended.
