Preservation of the recalled Criterion Collection laserdisc.
Shortly after releasing the first three James Bond films on laserdisc in a 2-disc CAV format in 1991, Criterion was asked by EON Productions (producers of the James Bond Films) to recall all unsold laserdisc product. It was felt that the audio commentary tracks on the 3 titles where unacceptable to Albert R. Broccoli, one of the original producers of the 3 films.
The three films were later re-packaged by Criterion into a single disc format, and re-issued without any of the supplemental features. When MGM released their DVDs of the first 3 films in the mid 1990s, they contained different audio commentaries.
This DVD is a preservation of the Dr. No laserdisc with the original commentary track.
