Universal has released a basically bare bones DVD of "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" The back cover states the film is in Dolby Surround but there is no option for sound anywhere on the DVD and the soundtrack sounds almost "Mono". *UPDATED* Yes, the DVD is in stereo, though the separation isn't very wide, unlike the CD recording. The original film opened in New York with 4 Track Mag prints. Since this is a Dolly Parton film/and a musical it would seem natural to release a true stereo print. (Especially since the song "I Will ALways Love You" has been a hit for over three decades by Both Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston) The trailer is the same as on the Laserdisc and the outtakes amount to 2 minutes of flubbed lines. The featurette is interesting though very brief and includes interviews from the real life Madam, Sheiff and TV Reporter. On the plus side: The widescreen image is spotless and colorful (though a little on the soft side) And the sound in clean. Also the retail price isn't very high. Over 30 minutes of film were cut from the Director's print including two musical numbers by Dolly Parton ( "A Gamble Either Way", and "Stallions Ways" both of which appeared on Parton's "Burlap and Stain" LP) and a whole subplot involving the hiring of a "shy" girl (Andrea Pike) who grows into a woman during the course of the film. Also smaller roles from the Broadway show were cut, included the abbreviated role of "Angel" (Played by Valerie Leigh Bilxer) the whore who wants to see her little boy for Christmas, and other scenes invloving Dolly and the whorehouse girls. Longer cuts of the big musical numbers also exit ("The Aggie Song", "20 Fans" and "Little Bitty Pisant Country Place") All of these would make for a pretty good special edition. (I've seen the cut footage to "The Aggie Song" and there was much more dancing) Now that "CHICAGO" is pulling audiences into musicals one would think Universal would have done more.
