Widescreen Feature Film - 1979
In 1979 "Surround Sound" was big and Glen larson jumped on that band wagon as well . Releasing a cut down version of the 3 hour pilot movie.
Those of us that where lucky enough to see this at the theater will never forget that experience.
The best part of the DVD release is that it is in stereo.
