The BFI (region 2) DVD of Otto Preminger's The Fan (1949) based on Oscar Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan with Jeanne Crain and George Sanders includes the 1916 silent film version of Lady Windermere's Fan. The Criterion DVD of De Palma's Blow Out has an early De Palma film, Murder A La Mod from 1968.

I know the title says "DVD" and not "Blu-ray," but the Criterion Blu-ray of THE SEVENTH SEAL comes with BERGMAN'S ISLAND on the same disc, which was actually a separate Criterion DVD release.

Good catch. And an especially nice bargain from Criterion.

"Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology" includes the 1951 feature "Superman and the Mole Men" as a bonus. The "Anthology" centers around the Christopher Reeve films and the Bryan Singer mess, "Superman Returns". This old movie is unrelated to the rest of the set, but just one of many, many, many nice bonuses included in this collection.

I actually have a vhs of Jack Albertson in that other Charlie movie for tv and lazily assumed it was a tv sequel to WILLY. Thanks for pointing that out. Blu Ray Bergman IS A DVD-and counts of course! I've learned of quite a few hidden gems here.

The standard Criterion 2 disc edition of The Seventh Seal also contains Bergman's Island.

Really? But its also a standalone Criterion release, isn't it? I thought it had its own spine number.

Quote:Yes, it had its own separate DVD release. I reviewed it on its own.

Really? But its also a standalone Criterion release, isn't it? I thought it had its own spine number.Yes, it did. Since Criterion had previously released Seventh Seal early in their catalog, I guess they thought that by tossing in Bergman's island as a bonus, those who owned the first pressing of Seventh Seal and were sitting on the fence about upgrading to the new edition had an incentive to do so. I know it did me.

A friend claims that he saw the 1973 TV-movie version of "The Miracle on 34th Street" as a DVD extra on an unrelated film. It's not the special edition of the original film (THAT contains the 1959 TV version), nor is it on the 1994 remake DVD. Does anyone know what DVD could have the 1973 film as an extra? It has been released unofficially, in what I'm guessing could be a prated version. Just curious...

"Pirated", that is...

Criterion's BD release (and I presume the DVD as well) of 12 Angry Men includes not only the 1955 TV version of 12 Angry Men, but another 1956 teleplay from Sidney Lumet and Reginald Rose, Tragedy in a Temporary Town.

The DVD of "House of Wax" (the 1953 version with Vincent Price) includes 1933's "Mystery of the Wax Museum". "Mystery" is shot in an early version of Technicolor, so it's interesting for that fact alone (although Fay Wray doesn't hurt, either).

Blue Underground's Daughters of Darkness release includes a second feature, The Blood Spattered Bride, which I haven't watched yet but I believe it's based on the same story or legend.

"Mystery" is shot in an early version of Technicolor, so it's interesting for that fact alone (although Fay Wray doesn't hurt, either).The 4-movie Horror set that TCM put out had the same menu as the standalone version, with a note about the other Wax film included, yet it isn't. Made me so mad!

Fox could have included the two TV versions of Laura with Laura. I have a copy of the first but not the second version done in the late 60s.

The Hitchcock blurray for Strangers on a Train includes both the US and the superior UK versions.

Criterion's Magnificent Obsession (1954) DVD set includes the complete earlier film version directed by John M. Stahl in 1935.
