List of DVDs with radio programs as extras

Was listening to the radio version of The Third Man the other day, and was wondering which other dvds included radio broadcasts.

It's a quote from the TV Show Dog Bites Man.

The Dick Tracy Movie Collection from Roan Group includes a 1940s radio version of Dick Tracy with Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and several other movie stars. It's suprisingly "dirty" for 1940s radio and very funny.

The Criterion box set of Mr. Arkadin contains three radio episodes from The Adventures of Harry Lime. You can also download them off the disc as MP3s.

More Criterion: Their two-disc Rebecca features three radio adaptations of the story. Notorious and The 39 Steps also contain radio show adaptations (from Lux Radio Theatre).

I know there's something I'm forgetting...

Several previous posters have mentioned various Warner Bros. DVDs - There are *many* classic movie releases from the 1930s-1950s from Warner Brothers that have radio broadcasts as bonuses. These oftentimes were either "Leo is on the Air" promotional programs or radio productions of the films usually starring some of the same actors (this was very common in the 1930s and 1940s). Check out individual WB titles to see if there are extras or not (usually Amazon will list them).
