Hi dcosio65,

Yes, I know something about this disc, as the picture you see on the listing page here comes from the copy in my collection. I'm not sure exactly what you want to know, but I'll tell you what I can about it. If you're asking about it in terms of rarity, it's not an extremely rare or valuable disc, but it's also not one that turns up everyday either. You'll see that there are only 3 copies registered in collections here, including mine, so it's not a common title like Speed or Independence Day. However, it's not a title like The Cell, The Limey, or U-571, that some would give a 4-figure price for, if that's what you're asking. If you want to know about the quality of the disc, there's good news and bad news, my friend. The good news is it's not a high rot risk title, as it was competently pressed at Pioneer USA in the 90's. The bad news is that it's nothing to write home about in terms of quality. My recollection of it is that the picture is not all that great, drifting randomly in and out of focus throughout. Then, there's the matter of the running time. I'm not sure how familiar you are with this particular program. It was originally a six-hour TV miniseries when it was broadcast in 1979. This disc is an extremely edited version which is only 110 minutes long. If you're looking for a complete version of the miniseries, this disc is definitely not what you're after. So much material is missing from it, I'm sure you would be badly disappointed if you want the whole thing. I should also add that it's not even close to measuring up to the 1953 film. After all, it is a made-for-TV production with a much lesser cast. Having said that, however, if you like the performers in it (which I do), it's worth adding to your collection, as long as you don't have to give a fortune for it. That's my opinion on it, for what it's worth. I hope this is helpful to you.

Best Regards,
David
