Pressing Notes

The CLV edition of American Graffiti replaced the CAV version and was spanned across 2 sides. The transfer is the same as the CAV version, including the very odd color problem, which is located at the end of side 1 in this edition.

Release History

American Graffiti was released by MCA Home Video on a 2 sided CLV disc in 1984 (Catalog #: 16001). A THX® certified widescreen (2.35:1) edition was issued in July 1996 and a Signature Collection edition was issued in October 1998. As was the style with George Lucas films, he tinkered with the film, specifically the sky background behind the opening shot of Mel's Diner in the opening sequence for this final LaserDisc release.
