This budget DVD edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print, which has been transferred to windowbox format at a natural speed. With 16mm prints often overcropping the surviving image from the 35mm source print, windowboxing the transfer allows as much of the image area to be viewed on all television monitors.

The film is accompanied by a music score compiled from the soundtracks of a number of early sound films.
