Description

For the 50th-anniversary DVD edition of Robert Aldrich's 1962 hit, the extras from the two-disc special-edition DVD are imported intact: documentary featurettes that sketch Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, commentary by drag specialists Charles Busch and John Epperson, Davis's wacky-campy appearance on The Andy Williams Show. Added to the package is a collection of alternate language tracks (including a beefed-up English-language soundtrack, but also Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese) and more subtitles--and, of course, the whole thing fits onto a single disc rather than two. A new booklet provides some handsomely designed background. The most important issue is the DVD presentation of the picture and sound, and this is superb: the image is sharper and slightly darker, and the visible grain makes it look like you're watching a movie, not a scrubbed-clean digital object. The funhouse craziness of Davis and Crawford deserves no less.
