Pressing Notes

A typical "non-feature" transfer from 16mm source material, They Call it Pro Football really shows its age. Already 13 years old at the time of release on DiscoVision, the elements are faded, scuffed and poorly maintained. The video transfer itself is as good as possible from the condition of the elements. Audio, while recorded a bit too hot, is clean and clear. There is very little actual audio from the film clips, instead, the soundtrack is mostly original music based on the late 60s and early 70s style of music. Disc replication is also average. Review copies exhibited high frequency speckling which, behind the constant motion on the screen, is almost invisible. It only is obvious during fadeouts when the screen goes to black.
