Metrodome Distribution released a 'reconstructed edition' of the movie in September 2005. The film was completely restored from the original film image for this DVD release. Metrodome went back to the original 35 mm (1.33:1 ratio) full frame negative and placed it within a widescreen format of 16:9 by creating an anamorphic transfer that respects the film's full screen format. The result is a side-curtained 1.33:1 image within a 1.78:1 ratio that fully preserves the entire field of potential viewable negative and presents the complete image with the maximum amount of visual detail possible.
