Notes: 
"Beg to Report" shares the disc with "Dobrý voják Švejk" ("The Good Soldier Švejk"), whose review I'd point you to for a general description of the picture quality applicable to both films.

Special thanks to Nikoloki, a regular @ the Zóna discussion board, for making this here comparison possible! (c:

Just one additional note regarding this particular film - as per the below title card, two shots damaged in the original negative were supplemented with the duplicate negative:

But I found 3 instances [of 3, 196 & 3 frames in length, respectively] where the PQ visibly degrades:

65796 / 65797 / 65798 / 65799 / 65800 | 80004 / 80005 / ... | 135996 / 135997 / 135998 / 135999 / 136000

Update: Thanks to our reader Martin J. for pointing out another instance where a bunch of frames were dropped in from an inferior source:

28957 / 28958 / 28959 / 28960 / 28961 / 28962
