This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a VHS videotape copy of a full-frame video transfer of a good 16mm reduction print. As a result, picture details are smeary and the coarse resolution lines are visible on high-definition systems.

The film is accompanied by a compilation of orchestral music from preexisting sources.

While the visual quality is less than ideal, this is the only known DVD home video edition of this rare Griffith feature film.

This Region 0 NTSC DVD-R edition is available through OLDIES.COM.
