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

This low-budget release of four Pickford films contains an edition of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, coarsely mastered from a substandard video transfer that appears to have utlized a 16mm reduction print, which looks bad enough on standard televisions and horrible on HD monitors. The transfer is rife with artifacts that are plainly seen in intertitles, and make the picture itself ill-defined. Easily the worst-looking film in the collection.

The film is presented with a music score cobbled-together from preexisting recordings.

Not at all a recommended edition, however, this is the only known edition of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm on DVD home video.
