Romance isn't just for the birds in this off peak comedy starring the late great John Belushi and Blair Brown.

Ernie Souchak (John Belushi) is an aggressive Chicago Sun-Times reporter news latest political expose is getting him into too much trouble. Is managing editor, McDermott (Allen Goorwitz) thinks that Ernie needs a change of scene. He sends him off to the Rockies to track down an interview ornithologist Nell Porter (Blair Brown).

Nell, who studies American bald eagles, isn't instantly taken with the citified Ernie. He, however, falls for her almost right away. Part of the problem is Nell's involvement with former NBA player who has become a mountain man and captured her affections.

This original love story directed by Michael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter) evokes the best screen comedies of the 30's and 40's and shows off the more sensitive side of a man who was one of this country's most popular young comic actors. - from back cover.

    LaserDisc Grading

    We spot play test all used LaserDiscs (with the exception of our Budget titles) and will note any signs of laser rot we may find.  LD's that have never been opened we obviously cannot guarantee their state. 

    We encourage you to view all the pictures and read our comments on the conditions, as we find these to be more beneficial than a standard grade. Occasionally we'll use a grade range (ie: VG / VG+) for either disc or cover if condition is borderline and hard to stick in one category.

    Mint:

    LaserDisc - only given to sealed discs, or films we personally acquired new, opened them but never played. Of course since the disc is sealed we cannot guarantee there are no pressing flaws or minor warping, or Laser Rot, and since LaserDiscs are out of print, we cannot except returns or exchanges on sealed records that have been opened.

    Cover - is still sealed.

    Near Mint (NM):

    LaserDisc - looks like new.

    Cover - may have light typical storage wear, but overall looks new.

    Excellent (EX):

    LaserDisc - may have one or two light marks (not scratches) but should play with no issues.

    Cover - has some very minor cosmetic issue, like a light crease, light ring wear, nothing that is very noticeable.

    Very Good Plus (VG+):

    LaserDisc - may have some scuffs and light surface marks / scratches, but should play with no issues.  

    Cover - will have noticeable wear such as ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc.  Could be a couple items (not all) and they should not be major.

    Very Good (VG):

    LaserDisc - may show a fair amout of surface wear but should play through without hanging up, may have light signs of laser rot (white speckling).

    Cover - will have a couple cosmetic issues ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc and it will be very pronounce.

    Good (G):

    LaserDisc - we will not list discs that aren't VG or better.

    Cover - cover is damaged to a point where it is not usable to house a record. All the seams are split, the panels are moldy, major writing all over, etc.   The only time we'll list something with a cover in this shape is if it's rare or the disc is in great shape.

    Orders ship within two business days.

    Rest assured, unlike MANY sellers and even large companies, we know how to ship vinyl (and LaserDiscs) correctly! We used high quality mailers, two to three cardboard stiffners and if the album you are buying is used it is shipped outside the cover to prevent damage to the seams in transit. When it comes to shipping LaserDiscs we don't always ship outside the cover as in transit seam wear is not as common. If you want your discs shipped outside the cover feel free to note that at checkout in the message box.
