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

This low-budget release of four Pickford films contains an edition of The Poor Little Rich Girl, mastered from an older natural-speed analog video transfer that appears to have utlized a 16mm reduction print, which is soft on image detail, slightly squished horizontally throwing off the picture geometry, and full of little videotape glitches.

The film is presented with a custom music score performed with synthesized sounds of a circus calliope. Annoying, and hardly appropriate to the film’s content.

Not really a recommended edition, however, this is the only known edition of Poor Little Rich Girl on DVD home video.
