This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print with a broad greytone range and reasonable image details. Some of the brightest highlights are blown-out and the deepest shadows are plugged-up, but the print does look better than most vintage 16mm prints.

The film is accompanied by a cobbled-together score of preexisting film music.

This Region 0 NTSC DVD-R edition is now OUT-OF-PRINT.
