The Blu-Ray transfer of this movie is astounding. The opening credits appear as if some clean-up is needed, but once the movie starts, this is 1080p all the way. I was amazed that a movie this old could look so good. This is much better than the Criterion DVD version, although the Criterion box set is high-quality. I had bought one of those mega-expensive criterion copies that came out decades ago, because it was such a rare movie. Then, a few years ago, Criterion re-released it in a box set and the difference between the two was fantastic. For anyone out there who has not been able to decide which version to buy, believe me, the blu-ray version is best. The chocolate-covered bananas really do look like chocolate-covered bananas now!
