The Restoration

The basis for this stunning new restoration was a 35mm
print created in 1962 from the original camera negative;
while the print itself was in good physical condition, the
source material from which it was made was extremely
battered.
Due to the extensive printing and handling it
had received over its lifetime, many shots were already
starting to shrink and wrap, and there were numerous
scratches, dust, and dirt in the damaged negative.
Scanned at 4k resolution, that 47-year-old print has
been meticulously cleaned both digitally and by
hand, complete with a new seamless soundtrack.

This essential restoration has been made possible by
the Academy Film Archive, the National Film Center of
the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, and
Kadokawa Pictures, Inc., with funding provided by
Kadokawa Cultural Promotion Foundation and
Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation.
