Country of origin: USA

It should be no surprise that this edition from TeleVista is not worth the money asked. The disc has been mastered from a 16mm reduction print that is only of good quality, and produces a picture that that is full of grainy video transfer artifacts.

The film is presented with a soundtrack of preexisting orchestral recordings.
