Pressing Notes

Part of the "Sports-how-to" library, Gene Littler's Golf is made up of two complete golf segments; each side has credits. Side 1 is titled "Pendulum Power." Side 2 is titled "Pendulum Power III." The master for both sides was videotape. The video quality is sharp and colors are quite rich. The materials used to prepare this disc are much better than others which are much newer. These programs, produced eight years prior to the launch of DiscoVision are much better than some of the feature film elements which were only a year or two old. The audio transfer is what you might expect. All of the audio is a narrative and has no need for any frequency response other than spoken word. Still, the dialog is clear and understandable.

Gene Littler's Golf made its last catalog appearance in October 1980. Oddly enough, the end "copyright" bumpers are on a green background. Possibly to match the color of the disc labels, since most of the feature films used blue background bumpers.
