This release, as well as the CAV edition [LV 1376-2] released a short time later, contains the original theatrical Dolby Stereo mix. The film was mixed to be released in the VistaSonic sound system, which was a 4-track discrete optical format without the limitations of the 4:2:4 Dolby MP Matrix. However, due to problems experienced with the VistaSonic releases of Popeye and Dragonslayer, the decision was made to use Dolby Stereo instead. No remixing of the discrete 4-track mix was done for the Dolby format and in addition, the discrete VistaSonic mix was used as-is for the 70mm release but with 2 Baby Boom sub tracks added to create the 6-track mag. I do not know if later releases used the VistaSonic Dolby Stereo mix or if the DVD's contain the original discrete VistaSonic mix used for the 70mm release. VistaSonic was invented by Terry Beard for Paramount and only Popeye and Dragonslayer ever had theatrical releases in VistaSonic sound - VistaSonic was basically an exact duplicate of the Colortek sound system. Terry Beard went on to invent the DTS-6 digital sound system for theaters and bought the ARTEC compression system that became DTS Digital Surround for the home.

This release contains the theatrical color timing. All later releases shifted the colors in Marion's bar towards red, where it appeared blue in this version.

This release contains the rod holding the boulder and the snake's reflection, both of which were removed for DVD and Blu-Ray.

There are no subtitles when the army officer speaks German.
