Very poor quality DVD. Most enjoyable movei., 4/17/2018 4:24 AM

The quality of the DVD is not nearly as good as the version which may be seen on YouTube, unfortunately.  Hopefully, a better transfer will be available in future.  It‘s most enjoyable and Conrad Veidt is in top form, with wonderful supporting performances.

(RESPONSE:  While the picture quality is better on You Tube, there's also a lot of shaking from poor transferring ... enough to have made me nauseous trying to watch it. We always strive to find better quality prints where available, but making our customers sick in the process is not something we look forward to.)
