Columbia Pictures
6 Reels
Flat 1.85
Dolby SR/DTS/SDDS8

Run Time: 98min

Attached: Air Force One

Note: Print examined for this entry had an SRD track on R1 only (for SR/SRD/SDDS8/DTS). R2 thru R6 had the SRD track painted black. This would indicate the likelihood of Dual Inventory prints.

ALL US prints of MiB had SRD on R1 only (and the attached trailer), with the rest of the reels not having SRD tracks. No dual inventory.

There was a note in the cans originally explaining this. (this was in the tail end of the days when Sony was pretty much SDDS-only, and they had only recently begun to add DTS to their titles).

Out of curiosity, was there audio on the R1 SRD track or was it silent?

Great information on the SRD track for R1. The SRD track does include the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio for the reel.

Regarding the comments on Sony's change to include other Digital Audio formats, I did show a print of "City Slickers" that had a DTS Timecode printed on it, but was told there were never any discs produced.
