1954 Rated NR 1hr 56m

While Criterion has provided the premium transfer of this exceptional film, they have done little else -- yet they still charge they're premium prices. All the more reason for seeing this film as a Netflix rental. Sound is mono, but clear and the picture is indeed quite sharp.
