I’ll admit that I had concerns regarding what this might look like, especially had it received restorative efforts, which apparently it has not.
Howard Deutch’s 1986 coming of age production appears to have a recent scan, with no apparently massage. It looks very much like a well lit 1986 film should look, and there’s the key.
Nary a problem in sight, and a sweet film to boot.
Colors, densities, black levels, grain structure all seem pleasantly reproduced. Nice work from Paramount.
Reminds one and all how quickly time flies. Ms Ringwald is 52.
