All-in-all, considering the age of the film, and its relatively low importance, the transfer looks fabulous.

As I don't understand Italian, I only listened to the English audio track. The quality was quite acceptable, however, there were a few places, where the dialogue dropped-out:

  • 4 seconds @ 35:01 (John Fielding's phone call)
  • 3 seconds @ 1:01:14 (interrogation at the police station)
  • 3 seconds @ 1:08:52 (soldiers shouting)

*difference between channels is -42.94 dB (0.71 %),
resp. -46.70 dB (0.46 %)
