Ratings (1-10): video: 4 / audio: 6 / additional content: 3 / overall: 5.

This edition has been mastered from a good 16mm reduction print, which is dark sometimes with plugged-up shadows and a few heavy middle greytones that leaves some pictures with nothing more than foreground people barely shining out from a sea of black background. The print is soft in image details, with some bright highlights, but the intertitles can be clearly read. Isn’t that something?

The film is accompanied by a soundtrack of compiled music performed on MIDI digital piano. It is better than low-fidelity compilations of old movie soundtracks.

This is the only known home video edition of the film available, which leaves room for a better-looking home video edition to be produced.
