Pressing Notes

Due to mastering limitations, (CLV was limited to 55 minutes per side) Flash Gordon got attacked by a run-away pair of scissors in its DiscoVision treatment. There are a few very good copies to be had, but one must look hard. The disc includes the MCA Videodisc standard "shrinking numbers" artwork at the end of side 1 and at the beginning and end of side 2.
