    This disc does not appear to be currently available in Region 1. Unfortunately, I have been able to find little detail regarding the quality of the transfers for either the R3 or R2 Spanish releases. As the R3 version is an anamorphic transfer this would be my version of choice despite being cropped from the original 1.66:1 aspect ratio. Luckily, the edges of the frame are used only minimally so the required cropping should not significantly affect the shot composition. The R2 Spanish version reportedly has a reasonable quality transfer so would also be worth considering. The R2 UK release of this disc reportedly has an 'abominable transfer' and even the R4 version is a significant improvement.
