Good movie gets poor release

"I picked up this DVD because I had never seen Ali Baba and the Seven Saracens. I have several copies of the Fury of Achilles (which is an excellent Sword and Sandal film) and figured I wouldn't mind having another at the bargain price to get Ali Baba.
When I popped the disc in to my player I was very upset by what I saw. This release by Alpha video is absolutely awful. The picture is terrible. The transfer of Achilles is soft and very snowy(and appears to be missing 3 or 4 minutes). Its the worst version of the film I own. The transfer of Ali Baba is severely scratched and at times you actually can see cracks in the source print. Its watchable,but with other versions of both titles out at bargain prices, why would anyone want to release such poor looking transfers?
Take my advice do take a look at these two good sword and sandal films, just do it in different editions."
