Ratings (1-10): video: 4 / audio: 4 / additional content: 0 / overall: 4.

This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print. However, the windowboxed video transfer suffers from the high disc compression utilized to get a 95-minute film onto a single-layered DVD-R disc. The picture can be really tough going on a large-format high-definition system and would probably play best on a computer monitor with an image about the size of the still frame above.

This presentation is accompanied by a cobbled-together soundtrack of preexisting (low-fidelity) recordings that are sometimes contemporary to the film.

This DVD is hard to recommend but, to our knowledge, it is the only home video edition that is currently available.
