I've never thought it'd come to this, but here's a DVD that's actually worse than the one that came out of the unspeakable recesses of Facets! :-O No wonder, when Noshame just took the - I suspect fieldblended from PAL to NTSC in the first place*** - Facets version, and converted it back to PAL, rendering the transfer B&W at the same time (including the - originally yellow - burnt-in English subtitles), resulting in even more pronounced combing, and a tad softer - less textured - picture...

*it says "DVD9" on the cover, but it's a mistake
**difference between channels is -44.14 dB (0.62 %)
***according to Czech Feature Film IV, 1961 - 1970 (213),
the film's negative is 2,218 m long, which corresponds to approx. 1:17:37 @ 25 fps
