Indiana Jones - Raiders Of The Lost Ark has the movie trailer at the
beginning... At least mine does...

The other day I saw a CED player at an Antique mall for sale with  a
price tag of $50....  It didn't have any movies with it and just
described it as a RCA Videodisc player...  It looked like it was beat to
hell too.... $50!! Can you believe it....
