Comments The presentation on this 40 year old film is remarkably good. Colors are less faded than in other installments of the series, brightness and contrast are superb, grain and sharpness are pleasing. It's hard to imagine this looking any better.

The 2.0 audio track is simple but effective; the optional subtitles are clear.

Japanese film expert Michael Jeck provides the liner notes for the booklet.
