All special features in the James Bond Collection, Volume 1, are found on Disc Two of each movie, and each comes with an eight-page production booklet. On Disc One, there are two optional commentaries: the first with Director Guy Hamilton, and the second with members of the cast and crew. On Disc Two, under Declassified, you will find a three-minute on-the-set segment with Sean Connery; Theodore Bikel
Connery is Agent 007, and his mission is to stop the evil tycoon Auric Goldfinger (Frobe) from executing an ingenious plot to take over the gold depository at Fort Knox and obliterate the world economy. Armed with his specially equipped Aston Martin (an accessory package which includes built-in machine guns, a smoke screen and an ejector seat), Bond battles it out with some pretty outrageous adversaries.
Like all of the DVDs in this collection, the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 picture is a huge improvement over the previous release. Colors are much more naturally balanced, color fidelity is improved, and details are resolved much better. The image is still dated, however, but looks much newer than most 40-plus year old films. Edges can have a fine, digital, stair-stepped look. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #12 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I started with the Ultimate Widescreen DVD Movie Guide and havenít missed an issue since. I thought it would be nice to have a good resource for DVD reviews, but itís turned into so much more. Itís to the point where if I don't see certain segments in the mag (new products, one installer, etc.), I feel a little disappointed. Please keep up the great work.
