"This is another fraud company who got hold of this, evidently, public doman film and lied, via the promise of "remastered" or "enhanced." I fell for it and am livid. Like you, I thought, "ALAS! I'll get to see it somewhat cleaned up, a little sharper!" Instead, it is a DVD-R and looks to be a copy of a copy of a copy (and possibly...of another copy). THERE ARE HUGE PIXILS throughout and the entire film is in an annoying digital fog.
This is nonsense what this company has done, and filling potential customers with false hope is perhaps the worst crime of all. It isn't worth the 25 cents it costs the company to make it.
My only advice is to get ANY other company's version of this film. It HAS to be better than this one."

"The story is not the problem. Davis and Howard are not the problem. That is not why I gave it 4 stars. The problem is that the film is badly in need of proper restoration. Poor sound and picture quality gives it 1 star in that category. Hasn't someone produced a better restored version yet after all these years and how many DVD reproductions later!!??"
