Our first look at this edition of The Girl With the Hatbox shows a full-frame video transfer of a very-good print that has been transferred at faster-than-natural speed. At least one video master glitch is seen in the final DVD.
The film is accompanied by a low-fidelity soundtrack of small ensemble and electronic music transferred from the optical soundtrack of the source print.
