Scope and content

General note

Plays fine. Special LaserDisc feature: interactive (and/or looping) of selection of clips and music (some of which were not used in opening piece) at the end of the 13 minute arranged film. Watchers would have had the ability to choose on which theme to have the montages of short clips play. These LaserDiscs were set up for interactive touch-screen viewing. The original look of the touch-screens can be seen, however, the exact content attached to the options and how they would have played is not accessible.
