This wonderful little film really creeps up on you and takes you by surprise. The Black & White transfer, complete
with black & white bumpers, is stunning. In spite of its age, the print used is of perfect contrast and brightness,
with only a very few splices. The audio transfer is equally outstanding. While it does have some of the surface and
background noise which is common for films of its age, Ruggles of Red Gap is easily understandable with clear
and crisp audio. Replication for this title is very good as well, with little or no speckling on any of the 4 sides.
On an odd note, all four sides exhibit 20 Frame Skip. Of further interest
is the placement of "end of side" on this title. Every side trips the end of side signal at the first frame of black
after the image has left the screen. This is very common practice today, in fact, that's the way all current discs
are encoded. However, DiscoVision usually ran the frame counter several hundred frames into the end of side bumper.
Ruggles of Red Gap was reissued on MCA Home Video as a 2 sided CLV release (Catalog #:21018). This edition was released in July 1992.
