But probably the best overall extra is the commentary track, recorded for the Elite laserdisc back in 1995.
Volume level concerns with the previous laserdisc are not in evidence on the DVD.
You see, the laserdisc has been around for more than 20 years and qualifies as the slowest-growing format of all time with about 2 million users.
Back then I had the movie as a VHS bootleg, dubbed from the widescreen laserdisc .
Even laserdisc looked horrible compared to this new DVD picture.
Certainly, the DVD is noticeably superior to previous video incarnations on VHS and laserdisc .
It's still a very entertaining commentary, with plenty of info and laughs, but it too is a holdover from previous releases, originally recorded for the laserdisc .
As you may know, the original DVD was a flipper - just like a laserdisc , you had to get up and flip the DVD about halfway through the movie.
This treatment seems somewhere between the two previously available formats - VHS and the aforementioned laserdisc - in quality.
When compared to the previous home video incarnations on both VHS and laserdisc , the new DVD looks wonderful.
