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

This edition has been mastered from a good quality 8mm reduction print, which is flecked with dust, debris and speckling, flat in contrast and blurry.

The film is accompanied by a hodge-podge of preexisting recordings. The supplemental section is nothing more than a set of still frames from this subpar print.

Not at all recommended, but this is currently the only DVD edition of the film available.
