The version I saw & own is in a slim case and was not a bootleg copy. Because of the age of the film and the fact it was (I believe) a made for TV movie, the transfer was not as crisp and clean as most DVDs. I really enjoyed the flashback to a young John Travolta and it was an added bonus to see Robert Reed in a more dramatic role.

This is a DVD packaged in a slim style plastic DVD case.

From the back of the DVD packaging.....

"In this moving 1976 made-for-TV movie John Travolta (Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Pulp Fiction) stars as Todd Lubitsch, a teenage boy born without the necessary immunities to stave off disease and infections. Because of this illness, Todd must live his entire life encased in a sanitary airtight environment; at home his room is closed off from his family and at school he gets around in an airtight suit. However, when Todd falls in love with Gina Biggs (Glynnis O'Conner) he must choose between continuing to be closed off or facing the near-certain death of living outside the bubble and following his emotions. This film is an early glimpse of John Travolta experimenting with dramatic roles and proving he had grown out of his Welcome Back Kotter days. Don't miss John Travolta's breakout starring performance."

"The movie I received was an illegal bootleg copy without an audio track.
Beware and do not purchase."
