I like this movie very much, and am thinking of upgrading this one from VHS to DVD. But I noticed that it's one of the older DVD titles, released with a swarm of others on that famous date of August 22, 1997. Therefore, I'm wondering about the video quality. How does it measure up to a 2002 transfer? According to the following Widescreen Review, this DVD is the best thing since sliced bread and peanut butter & jelly! (But I'm wondering if this glowing recommendation is because of the date (1997) of the review. I'm wondering if the term "...is the end of the world in picture quality" still applies 5 years later.) ........ Widescreen Review: Picture Quality: 5 (5 is the highest rating) The anamorphically enhanced DVD is the end of the world in picture quality. It looks better than film. The stupendous image quality is no doubt due to the additional vertical lines that are created by the anamorphic doubling process. Viewed in the component video format, the quality is further magnified with dramatically enhanced sharpness and detail. Every imaging aspect is optimized for accuracy and naturalness. The DVD anamorphic and letterbox are 2.32:1.
