12 inches of "Pulp Fiction"

Pulp Fiction was released on Oct 12th, 1994 and went on to gross a boatload of cash for Miramax. Back then it was the norm for a film to take 6-9 months, or even a year, to reach home video. Laserdisc owners sometimes had to wait even longer.  Pulp Fiction was still playing in first run theaters in the early months of 1995. I was working at a laserdisc shop at the time and the Japanese laserdisc of Pulp Fiction had been released. We had the biggest movie going at the time available for rental while it was still in theaters. It's nothing nowadays, but at the time it was a major score. This is the only LD I still own. Please note the last picture as it shows the difference between the original art and the re-touched version that replaced it and is now commonplace.
