This Japanese version (on eBay) says it is in 8 mm videotape. What exactly is that?
Running time, 155 minutes.

Connie googled it and found that 8 mm. video was and even still is available in the U.S. That said, I'm remembering a marketing campaign decades ago related to it. Ned, I think you will find, if you look carefully as I finally did, that the video case in the photo is exactly the same and the same size as the old audio cassette. The innovation was that the makeup of the tape coating was much finer and more capable of better quality. Seems to have gotten marketed nearly out of existence due to DVD, BluRay, and now 4K. Warner Bros. seems to have generated the one in the picture. Check it out on Wikipedia. That's where Connie found it.
