I haven't seen as many of his films that have commentary, but of the ones I have seen:

Jinnah-
The Devil Rides Out-

and it's always a treat to hear Mr. Lee on the LOTR dvds. (Even though he isn't in them as much.)



Side note: This is my 50th post! Yay!!

Unhappily I only have DVD:
* The wicker man
* Dracula Prince of Darkness

He/she only imagines! Rasputin with documentary! I love this film and east character of Mr. Lee. For me Rasputin is something very special. I find grandiose. But I don't have this DVD, I recorded the film of TV.

I like the Documentary The wicker a lot Man, as well as this it is one of the films of my preference. As we will imagine that the filmings happened in days so colds and everything more. And to think that after so much work scenes disappear as for a magic touch! It was great happiness when I found DVD in the store.

Out of this list:
I imported DVD: The man with Golden Gun - then there are no legends nor in Spanish. I don't get to understand what is commented on. When it is written in English get to read a lot of things, but when it is spoken soemnte, it is difficult. Even so I keep with the whole affection DVD of Scaramanaga.

Another DVD that I mattered was To the Devil, Daughter that also brings the alone documentary in English. It is a pity, because for the that I saw there is a lot of amusement in him.

One day I will have films of the Mr. lee more and more. Slowly we arrived where we wanted if! :elefant:

Not at all. It is odd, though, that in Australia you're only NOW getting the Special Edition DVD. In fact, I assume from you wrote that it's not even available yet. Here, in the US, the entire Bond DVD series has been OOP for some months now. I thought the titles had all been pulled in anticipation of a future re-release, timed to coincide with the cinema release of the next film in the saga.

As I said in another thread, Professor, Australia is like the Twilight Zone when it comes to DVD releases. No rhyme or reason to any of it. Often we miss out all together on a title, or it is released months or years later than everywhere else, or we only get one format of a release i.e. only Pan and Scan, or only Widescreen.

My theory is it comes from living in a place nicknamed Oz. :freak2:

It sounds excellent, if I order it now in pre-release I get it at a discount and postage free. Thanks again! Laughing out loud

By all means, get it. The Special edition DVD is nicely done and has excellent extras. The "Making of documentary" is worth the price alone. It's packed full of insights and information, and contains some wonderful stories and reminiscences. Including Roger Moore relating a hilarious incident that ocurred when he and Mr. Lee went exploring together one of the islands used for on location filming.

I wouldn't want to lash out on the DVD, which is now available here in the special edition (Surprise! Surprise!:1roll: ), without some extras to make it worth the outlay. I'm assuming the documentary will do so.

Not really. The commentary track on MWTGG isn't an 'on going conversation,' as it were. It's more a collection of 'pieces' related to some aspect of the action on the screen -- ie. stuntmen relating how a certain stunt was done. And while Mr. Lee does take part, the main voice on the commentary track is director Guy Hamilton.

Mr. Lee DOES play a substantial part, however, in the interviews that comprise the "Making of. . ." documentary that is part of the Special Edition DVD.

Thanks Professor, I like the film but I wouldn't want to lash out on the DVD, which is now available here in the special edition (Surprise! Surprise!:1roll: ), without some extras to make it worth the outlay. I'm assuming the documentary will do so.

I sort of had to plump for WICKER MAN simply because it's the only one I have of Mr. Lee on DVD Sad the rest are video's.

Some christmas list mine will be this year.Tongue

I chose The Devil Rides Out because I enjoyed hearing Mr. Lee discuss the history and practice of occultism. Unfortunately the Wicker Man commentary isn't available in Region 1. All the more reason to get a Region-free DVD player.

I chose The Wicker Man commentary,they are all very great commentary tracks but this is absolutely the best,I think.

I had to vote for Rasputin, the Mad Monk.

It's been a while since i listened to the track, but i found this one the most entertaining.
Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Francis Mathhes and Susan Farmer commenting on the film and Hammer studios in general and having a lot of fun while doing so.

It's worth getting the dvd for, even when you don't like the movie. Smile
