Carpenter, Milius & Cox?  Very cool, haven't got mine yet  - can't wait.

This DVD is really loaded on features.  GBU is very bare bones in comparison - just curious, anyone know why  they rushed GBU to market and took their time with OUATITW?

Different studios.  My guess is that to add any more extras (due to length of film), producers would've needed to add a second DVD disc, which would've increased the price, and maybe less copies sold by their estimates.....

The Dollars films really need better DVDs IMO,pic. quality is pretty good but think of all the extras they could have

Maybe because Paramount felt guilty about the way they butchered OUATITW back in '68 that they wanted to make amends by making a supercool DVD?  Just a thought . . .  ;)

I just watched OUATIW first the actual movie then the commentary version. It is my favorite western. Months ago I added my name to amazon.com's petition to ask that this movie be made in DVD. Paramount really did an excellent DVD version. I recommend it to all OUATIW fans.

There are two R1 reviews up now! which makes this dvd even more exciting for me...I can't wait until the 18th. Enjoy!
