The Bridgestone VHS of Springtime In the Sierras arrived today. The front of the box proclaims "Original Uncut Theatrical Version." On the back, the fine print confirms it runs 75 minutes. However, I clocked the film at 53 minutes and 19 seconds from the opening logo to the fade to black at end. That makes a liar out of the cover art. I had a hunch that would be case when the film began with the "MCA TV" logo. It is in monochrome instead of TruColor. The transfer would be excellent if it didn't have the blurring and tearing that comes with the cheap, slow EP speed. Bridgestone has at least of dozen Roy Rogers titles in this uniform set. I emailed several marketplace sellers a short list of questions about several titles. A waste of time, probably.Originally Posted by Bob Gu
That Bridgestone "Springtime" release is not actually described as being a color print, just uncut.
Avoid the Bridgstone tapes.
