The China Syndrome

Catalog Number VLD3060
Suggested Retail Price $34.95

One of the first titles to be released on LaserVision by Columbia Pictures Home Entertainment, The China Syndrome was pressed in Japan as an Extended Play, mono, 3-sided disc with a standard Discovision Associates dead side. The transfer is up to Columbia's usual standards: smeary, soft image, with too much contrast and an amazing amount of the color orange with a total lack of the color green.

The China Syndrome shows clear signs of having been originally prepared by MCA for release under the DiscoVision label. Although a Columbia Pictures Home Entertainment logo starts the disc, the disc ends with MCA's standard blue copyright screen - a copyright seen ONLY on MCA DiscoVision titles.
