They Made Me a Criminal [DVD] [1939]

An engaging programmer from 1939 gets a fairly decent DVD edition from Triton. The original source material shows some running scratches of various severity, but also seems to have had some restorative work done during the transfer process. The image maintains the original 1.37:1 aspect ratio, and appears to be anamorphic; on normal televisions and monitors extremely narrow bars will be visible. The print used is a little lacking in contrast, but does have good solid blacks with decent shadows. The image is unfortunately rather soft throughout, although grain and artifacting are absent and the picture is quite easy to watch. The dual-channel mono sound is good, considering the source, and generally manages to avoid distortion. Hiss and rumble have been removed in places, but are quite obvious in others. There are no subtitles. There are 13 chapter stops. The disc includes PC Friendly (promotional links, for the most part) and is packaged in a jewel case.
