Notes on the transfer from the back of the jacket:

Superscan Hi-Definition Downconversion Transfer: The Boys From Brazil was transferred on a High Definition Rank Mark III. The 1125 line signal was downconverted to 525 line NTSC, increasing resolution and minimizing video artifacts, such as moire and twitter. The transfer took place at IVC in Burbank and utilized a Pogle Color Corrector. The colorist was Mike Volland.

Chapter 20 contains the original theatrical trailer, chapter 21 contains the alternate trailer.
