This film was considered "lost" for many years until the original, and only, surviving copy was found in an attic. Lovingly restored by the Australian Film and Sound Archive, it has been available on Blu ray in Australia for about 1 year. Classic Oz genre and VERY confronting, I would recommend this film to anyone willing to take a chance.

Wow. Didn't see this coming. Otherwise I wouldn't have dropped as much dough on the OZ release, oh well.

I hope that this edition isn't DVNRed to within an inch of it's life, as the Australian edition appears to have been. This film needed a frame by frame restoration but seems to have been just sandblasted blasted by by noise reduction with terrible results. Such a great and important film needed better care taken by the archivists...

What Oz-Steve said! Unfortunately, I don't have much hope that the Americans will have had access to the original materials to do their own transfer without the excessive DNR that plagues the Aussie disc.
