I know about these films. How's the DVD quality (audio/video) on this Vintage Classics Series?

Bumping. I'm also interested in a 12 Angry Men review if anyone has seen the disc. I just got a copy of The Birdman of Alcatraz, but haven't had time to watch it yet.

I viewed 12 Angry Men (great movie!) Tuesday night. Not a spectacular, but solid and satisfactory transfer. Reasonably sharp images, agreeably rendered gray values, specks and dirt occasional. However, I suspect that this is the same MGM transfer as the laserdisc. 6/10

You certainly can't get anymore barebones than this disc, though. It doesn't even come with a booklet, let alone special features (of which this film, along with a perfect transfer, richly deserves).

Certainly worth my $3.99, I'd say.

Bumping again.

Are there any extras on "Birdman Of Alcatraz"? I don't recall hearing of any, but John Frankenheimer has done quite a few commentaries. Is there one on this disc?

Jim,

The only feature is a theatrical trailer, unfortunately.
