Kino's restoration of this film is superb, though I think we can expect a superior edition in the future. The print could have been cleaner and the intertitles didn't seem to be translated as accurately as they could have been, but it is wonderful to see the correct color tinting and have a choice between two different scores.

Don't have this one, should I wait for that superior edition to hit shelves.

You may or may not want to. It's hard to know how long it will be. I first heard that a new restoration was in the works and that was back in 2006.
