Franco Zeffirelli's successful cinematic adaptation of Romeo & Juliet comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.66:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. This is an acceptable, but less than spectacular release from Paramount. Considering this is one of the most successful Shakespearean adaptations of all time, it is a shame Paramount did not take the chance to educate more people about the Bard with the extras.
