Pressing Notes

This 5 sided version is actually the 2nd version of this title available. It stands out as important because side 3 ends with Dean Wormer screaming at the Deltas as they march out of the auditorium after attending a hearing concerning their "Roman Toga Party." The music builds as the Dean continues yelling. The DiscoVision side end bumper displays while the film soundtrack continues for several more seconds. Side 4 begins with the letters being removed from the Delta House, but there are a few frames missing. DiscoVision stopped shipping the 5 sided version in 1980.

Of all DiscoVision editions, and the side 3/4 break problems aside, the side breaks of this version are by far the best for this film.
