This version replaced Paramount's 1981 release of the original theatrical cut and for many years, was the only version of the film available on LD until Paramount released a widescreen version of the original theatrical cut on LD in 1991.
Same expanded television version also released in Japan as [SF057-1618] and [VHP49015~6].
The source elements were clearly quite dirty. There are numerous negative and positive dirt throughout, particularly on the additional footage. Some may, falsely attribute these to "laser rot."
This release contains 12 minutes of additional footage to the Theatrical cut.
