The Making of Star Wars/SP FX: The Empire Strikes Back, CED, 20th Century-Fox Video, USA 1982

This was the first release of this programme on CED, released by 20th Century-Fox video. I am unsure if this was rereleased under the CBS/Fox banner later.

And yes, it bothers me that the label was affixed skewed.

The outer shell was called a caddy, and they came in blue and white variations. (The disc was inserted into a slot on the player, and the caddy retracted and put away during playback.) The colour of the caddy seems to be random across releases, and has no bearing on the collectible value of the discs.

There was also a variation in how the handles at the bottom were formed. They could be either recessed or raised. On later disc there was no handle at all. Additionally, the plastic tray inside the caddy, called a spine, could also vary in colour, so any and all combinations of caddy and spine could be possible.

Maybe all variations should be considered unique and collected? Myself, I'm having a hard time finding any of the CEDs in something close to acceptable condition. Many of them suffer from excessive shelf-wear, especially on the bottom. This one's even been crushed in the corner. Someone must really have it in for these CEDs.
