Other features

With a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer, the film looks great: It's crisp and well-preserved. As for audio, the English track is in Dolby Digital Surround, and there's a French track in Dolby mono. English and Spanish subtitles are provided. No extras except the theatrical trailer (which looks horrible).
