Notes: 
The recording from TV Nova's digital broadcast below shows the film as most of the people know it (at least here - in Czech Republic - where it's on the telly every now & then). The French DVD, while displaying virtually identical print damage (see the examples below), shows a great improvement in the appearance of colours. However, as I've never seen it theatrically, I cannot confirm if this is how the film is supposed to look.
