As far as I know, Ken never released any sound versions of their older United Artists titles. The previous owner might have used their home sound striping unit. I have copies of Kens' "Ghidrah" and "Godzilla vs. the Thing" that had been sound striped this way.
-------------------- I think there's room for just one more film.....
It is very possible that, since pre-striped film was very easy to come by back in the 70's, Ken's lab may have just been out of non-striped film when they printed that title. Since sound-striped film runs fine through silent projectors, it wouldnt have made a difference to the consumer.
