Can anybody tell me if the Turner/Warner 2010 re-releases of "The Time Machine" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1939) include fewer extras than what appeared in the older snap-pack versions? Here are links to the re-releases, if that's helpful:

http://www.amazon.com/Time-Machine-Rod-Taylor/dp/B0045HCJSA/ref=sr_1_2?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1330125321&sr=1-2
http://www.amazon.com/Hunchback-Notre-Dame-Charles-Laughton/dp/B0045HCJS0/ref=sr_1_3?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1330216881&sr=1-3

I am thinking the new Time Machine is the same DVD included with the TCM Sci-Fi 4-pack (with 2001, Forbidden Planet, and Soylent Green) and has the "Journey Back" documentary and nothing else, but am not sure. I'm also not sure about Hunchback.

Does anyone know? Thanks!

I've got the Hunchback disc and I can tell you it has the behind the scenes documentary featuring an interview with Maureen O'Hara. I really have no idea how that compares to the snapper version.

Thanks for the reply. Moviemet.com has an entry (http://moviemet.com/release/hunchback-notre-dame-1939-snapper-case ) where they list the original extras as

Interactive Menus
Production Notes
Scene Access
Theatrical Trailer
Behind-the-Scenes Documentary
Interview with Maureen O'Hara

although an entry at dvdbeaver.com doesn't mention a trailer. I do get the impression that the documentary and Maureen O'Hara interview were originally separate extras, while the re-release may have edited them together (?).

FYI, I just bought a used copy of the original snapper "Time Machine", so that question is moot. :)
