I have just bought the special edition and it is a great piece of work. Great print and great extra's. I hope they will do this for the other movies/films as well. Buy it.
My first impression after a very quick look:
*Candid Caine, an old interview/documentary is absolutely great. A must-see for all Caine fans, not a lot op Palmer in there, but a very nice old programme with some brilliant scenes.
*The still gallery (lasting more than 13 minutes) contains some very rare stills I had never seen before. The very first good still gallery on a Palmerdvd, worth the purchase alone.
*Interview with Michael Caine, very nice to see him (with little beard)talk about Ipcress and a little bit about FiB and B$B but hardcore fans will not get a lot of new information or anecdotes. Most of the stuff you could have read in his biographies or other Caine books. I would have had some more questions (if only they called me)! But a nice addition.
*Ken Adam (short interview) has some interesting stuff about arguing with Harry Saltzman over the art-direction.
*Radiospots aren't new to you if you have visited my site before but nice anyway.
*Very rare: they included the scenes where the credits are shown, without the credits, interesting!
*Furie/Hunt comment, very interesting but most fans will have heard it on the Anchor Bay (reg 1)release.
*Comedypiece very funny, especially because it made especially for the dvd.
*little poster features original and Italian style poster
* Booklet in dvdcase: haven't had the time to read it... Looks nice.
*soundtrack: the UK release with the soundbites.
Let me know your opinion!
