Both of these Criterion laserdiscs have a slew of excellent features that were not carried over to DVD. Check out the list:
ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN
- Audio commentary by director Terry Gilliam
- Four deleted scenes
- A detailed analysis of the film’s script and development
- Storyboards documenting scenes never filmed
- Production sketches, models and costume tests
- Clips, stills, and notes from previous Munchausen film versions
- Step-by-step presentation of special effects compositing
- History of the film’s legendary production, with interviews and location video
- Original theatrical trailer, posters, and advertising campaigns.
(also of note is that the transfer is at a 1.75:1 ratio, presumably Gilliam’s preferred ratio)
THE FISHER KING
- Audio Comentary by Terry Gilliam
- Six deleted scenes
- Original theatrical trailers
- Key scene anlysis with storyboards, screenplay excerpts, behind the scenes pics, etc.
- Costume test
I own both of these laserdisc sets and was wondering if there was anyone around willing to do a nice DVD version of both of these. They’re both completely excellent films that definitely should be preserved. Any interest here?
I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.
