There are also two screen tests included, both showing early readings of scenes eventually used in the film: "Ben Cross and Patricia Hodge Screen Test" (SD, 4:14), and "Ian Charleson Screen Test" (SD, 4:34). "Sprint Around the Quad" (SD, 1:55) is a brief bit from the reunion gathering, this one set at Eton College where the scene was filmed. "Famous Opening Shot" (SD, 1:06) is a quick extra, where Ben Cross describes the experience of the opening scene from the film, where the pack of runners sprints down the beach. Finally, the film's theatrical trailer (SD, 1:34) is included.
The film is housed in a digibook case that features pages of trivia, photography from the film and behind-the-scenes photos, as well as original artwork and historical information on the cast, crew and story of the film. Also included is a 4-track sampler CD featuring music from the original score by Vangelis.
Warner has delivered a handsome high definition release for one of its classic catalog titles. The upgrades for both video and audio on this Blu-ray version are striking and impressive. And the timelessness of both the story and picture makes it seem as fresh as ever, over thirty years since its release. A bevy of interesting bonus material simply adds to an already rewarding release. Highly recommended.
