Physical Description:
1 videodisc (96 min.) : sound, color ; 4 3/4 in.
Summary:
A gory musical farce loosely related to the story of the Alferd Packer expedition of miners into Colorado and resulting trial of Packer for cannibalism.
General Note:
Originally released as a motion picture, 1996.

Opening frame has a farcical (fake) introduction saying: "The film you are about to see was originally released in 1954. Upstaged by the overwhelming popularity of "Oklahoma!", its short lived theater run was cancelled, and "Alferd Packer: the Musical" soon fell into obscurity. The original negative, rediscoverd just last year, has been painstakingly restored using state-of-the-art color enhancing and computer reconstruction technology. The film's violent scenes have been edited out for your viewing pleasure."
