Transfer quality is good on this DVD. Worth every penny.
Anyone who grew up in the 50's and lived in Los Angeles remembers Jack Webb and Dragnet. These DVD's are the best prints I have ever seen and the commercials are even more entertaining. I highly recommend these to any Jack Webb fan and/or "baby boomer." The old shots of a 50's Los Angeles are great.
I originally had these same episodes on a different tape. The quality and sound were poor. The DVD quality is very, very good. Highly recomend buying the DVD. Waiting for the 2nd DVD to be delivered. I hope "oldies" will come out with a third volume.
