This package represents excellent value for money when you price up the individual films.
The extras are many and interesting. Each of the four older films has a new featurette about the film, and a cartoon (I kid you not), which helps to evoke the period when the films were made.
The most recent film 'Whatever...' is a two disc set packed with extras, including a lengthy feature about Bette's career, narrated by Jodie Foster. There is yet another disc with yet another 88 min profile of Bette, narrated by Susan Sarandon.
These discs play on region 2 machines as well. I advise anyone who enjoys classic drama films to buy it. The picture quality is outstanding, and the sound is good, considering the age of the films.
I wont say much about the films, but just look at her eyes in 'Jezebel' when she realises that her old beau has married. That is what Kim Carnes sang about. Bette Davis is a one-off.
There is a Volume 3 due out in 2007 featuring five more films:
'All This And Heaven Too'
'The Corn Is Green'
'Watch On The Rhine'
'In This Our Life'
I can hardly wait.
