Bicycle Thief -- legit copy?

An anonymous patron donated a VHS copy of Bicycle Thief.
Professional-looking cover art says it's a Viking Video Classics release
from 1986. However, the cassette itself has only 1 label, on top of the
shell, which reads "Burbank Video." Beneath that, HANDWRITTEN in magic
marker, is "The Bicycle Thief Subtitled." Is this a legit copy? Print
quality, sound, and subtitles are pretty bad. We already have BT on DVD so
I probably shouldn't even add it because of the technical problems alone,
but I'm really curious if it's a bootleg.
