I had a CED player and Bond movies. I bought one since it was indeed the first video format to release the Bond movies. My discs disappeared a few years ago. I don't remember anything strange about watching the GOLDFINGER release. However, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME is a different story. Each side of the disc would hold up to 60 minutes of video. Since SWLM runs 125-126 minutes, RCA didn't want to do another disc for 5-6 minutes of footage. (Actually to find a suitable stopping point to switch discs they may have been able to use another disc for more than the 5-6 minutes. Still too short for the expense of another disc). In order to eliminate the need for another disc, they sped up the recording to fit in the 120 minute time available on the 2-sided disc. I remember Roger Moore made the comment that the CED version of SWLM made his voice sound like an "English school boy".
