I would be very surprised if it wasn't. As seems to be the norm for lower profile Universal catalog titles grain and textures both look rather subpar and some sharpening has been applied for both the Italian and the German versions. I can understand that not every movie can be treated like Spartacus but why add ill-advised filtering and sharpening to make an old master even uglier? At this point I do not even think that for most movies they retain a digital version that does not have these "enhancements" baked in. That being said I hope that I'll be wrong and this will be a release from the "new" Universal that has released/licensed far too few catalog titles to make us forget the "old" Universal.
