This edition has been mastered from a 16mm reduction print with a wandering frameline. The whole print beyond the first three minutes of the film is way too light, and no adjustment to the full-frame video transfer has been made. This is typical of the carelessness of Film Classics (JEF Films) and their subsequent company, TeleVista. Remember, these people don’t care about quality, it’s all about getting your $20.00.

Inexplicably, the presentation starts off with a credits title card from an unidentified MGM film of the 1920s, which is totally unrelated to the film at hand.

This disc is not recommended, but it is currently the only known home video edition of this film.
