Hey RD and Blade! How’s THIS for Someone Bought This?
This is my favorite movie of all time and now I officially own EVERY US RELEASE of this movie.
From Left to Right:
VHS, Blu-Ray, Laserdisc, DVD, and Beta.
The Beta has mold sadly, so I’m still on the hunt for another. Someone was supposed to see if they can clean this tape for me, but I haven’t heard from him.
Supposedly, there are only a HANDFUL of Beta copies made and mostly for rental. Most experts I know have never even HEARD of an actual Beta release, much less have seen it.
I wish Wrestlecrap Radio was still around. This would be an AWESOME subject! An actual FAN of No Holds Barred! lmao
BTW, it’s also on Netflix now for those of you who haven’t seen it….
Wow! That’s quite an impressive collection!
But wait… no Super 8 version?!
Rachel responds: “To answer your question, there was no Video8 version though the tape was released by RCA Columbia who were one of the labels that did put them out. At least not that I’ve seen which is surprising considering that they were owned by Sony which tried to make the push to get everyone to buy a Video8 player. They released Popcorn on there, but not No Holds Barred.
Also, a bit of an update: I WAS able to get the Beta copy restored and now it’s in working order. Just some surface mold that I found someone to clean professionally, so this copy has been saved.”
