Pressing Notes

Trials and Triumphs begins as most other titles in the NFL catalog, but looses its way about half way through. The program begins as an outline of players who have made it into the NFL against the odds, or some because of them. The final 10 minutes of the program center around highlights from Superbowl 7, between the Miami Dolphins and the Washington Redskins.

Mastered from 16mm source material, the age of the elements, only 6 years old at the time of the DiscoVision mastering are grainy and poorly represented. The actual video transfer itself is as good as can be expected based on the condition of the elements. The audio is unusually clean and clear for a program of this type and some of the frequency range of the score is mildly surprising. In standard fashion for NFL films, original music is included on this program. Disc replication is average, with all review copies experiencing some minor video speckling.
