Like some others here there was keen anticipation at the final releasing of this film by Warners on May 3. Fortunately I was able to find a copy and will clarify what has been posted previously that total running time is indeed 170 minutes. Soundtrack remastered in 5.1 Dolby Digital along with two featurettes entitled "The Filming Of The Battle Of The Bulge " and "History Recreated". Old news to anyone aware of the dvd coming out but thought I would mention it anyway. There is also the Theatrical Trailer included. I will be viewing it shortly so a general idea of the audio and video quality will follow. Hang in there! The first featurette runs for 9 min. 35 sec. and is presented in full frame B&W. Image is somewhat grainy and in reasonable condition. The audio is a bit thin and shows its age. Some good shots of the actors and battle scenes with some insight on the film by Henry Fonda adding to the main narrator's comments. Interesting that $500,000 was spent recreating the village. The second featurette ( History Recreated ) is also full frame B&W and runs for 8 min. 4 sec. Here we have an interview with both the Producer Milton Sperling as well as Robert Shaw. Mr. Sperling mentioned to the interviewer that the tanks in the movie were the same as those in the actual battle. Well, I'm no expert on WW2 but he obviously was misinformed at the time! Generally in good condition but the audio and video do show their age here too with some damage (lines, speckles) showing up here and there. Overall they are both informative and worth watching. Lastly in mentioning extras is the Theatrical Trailer. At the moment I am watching it on a 27" tv so I cannot say if it is anamorphic but it looks and sounds very good. Appears to be in stereo and I got a treat out of the introduction that tells the audience: " Warner presents in Cinerama" where you see the Warners logo appear and then fade to the Cinerama logo. From there it takes you through various scenes with a "roll call" of the principal actors involved. Standard '60's narration and a nice treat. Total running time is 5 min. 7 sec.
