Pressing Notes

The CLV edition of The Jerk replaced the CAV version with no announcement. The jackets were printed with no artwork changes. This edition corrects the missing audio problem at the 2-3 side-break on the Standard Play (CAV) edition by playing the scene for the full duration. Of course, this leads to a horrible problem, where the lead-in music is present at the end of side 1 and then continues on side 2. In an attempt to clear up a mistake on the original edition, they actually made the break more jarring.

Both the video and audio transfer are the exact same as the previous edition. Disc replication was surprisingly good, with very little speckling and no audio helicoptering.

Release History

The Jerk was released in November 1992 by MCA/Universal Home Video (Catalog #:16015) in Digital Mono. There have been some minor audio alterations which are not noted on the jacket anywhere.
