This edition from Grapevine Video has been transferred from a good 16mm reduction print, which is soft of image detail, with contrasty greytones, blasted-out highlights, some speckling and dust, and exposure fluctuations. The video transfer is adequate on standard equipment, and rougher going on high-definition systems, but it remains watchable when the print deficiencies are excused.

The film is accompanied by an electric organ score that may not be customized to the film.
