Quality note: This DVD was assembled from two film prints in order to present the complete story. At the beginning you may notice some frame-skips (due to splices in the surviving footage) that were unavoidable. Overall the prints are rather rough and worn but we still believe the end result is a very enjoyable DVD that we are pleased to offer.
