It's not too often that a special edition is followed by a not-as-special edition.

Patton, Special Edition is a two disc set with a documentary and isolated score, but when it gets its re-release two years later, they're gone.

Both still have an informative audio essay, and the new version should have a less expensive price tag, but that's quite the switch we're not used to seeing.

I believe the movie-only disc is going to be included in Fox's new war movie boxed set, while the 2-disc special edition will still be available as a stand-alone purchase. I'm not even sure if the movie-only disc will be sold individually, it may only be available as part of the larger set. So this doen't look like a giant step backwards to me.

Regards,

Joe

I just picked up the 2 discer, after hearing that the re-release will be only the single disc. For $22 Canadian I couldn't pass it up. Great movie and it looks great for being 30 years old.

If FOX is looking for something positive to do for their war movies box set, why don't they redo The Longest Day in anamorphic?

The two disc special edition will still be available along with the lowered price movie-only edition.

Can't go wrong for $22 Jim. What a score. That was new?

Kyle, Found it at Future Shop for that price, of course before taxes. I was definitely happy to find it for that price.
