The original theatrical release of Diary of a Mad Housewife had a total running time of 103 minutes. While it
cannot be confirmed, the only difference between that version and this 97 minute version is an edited opening credits
sequence, which admittedly is rather disjointed in this edition. This version cannot be confused with the TV
version of the film which could more correctly be called an alternate version with some altered footage and a
running time of 95 minutes.
DiscoVision last listed this mad housewife in the August 1980 catalog update. Mastered with the alternate "red"
bumpers, the video transfer has an odd blue tint to some scenes - almost as if the image was shot through a fog filter.
The reds are amazingly brilliant but show the typical defects in DiscoVision's pressing. The audio transfer is
unremarkable, except for the first 2000 frames of side 2 where the volume is almost non-existent.
Some masterings of side 2 were encoded with 20 Frame Skip.
Diary of a Mad Housewife has never been re-issued on LaserDisc.
