An full-length audio commentary with several of the film’s stars (Stuart Whitman, Nehemiah Persoff, Michael Ansara and Patrick Wayne) contains some fun recollections from its participants, as well as details about the movie itself. Alas, this is one of those cut-and-paste jobs wherein all the contributors were recorded individually and subsequently re-edited and assembled to play with the main feature. Still, it’s a good listen. Additional goodies include a look at Dell’s slightly-different comic book adaptation (that sold for a whoppin’ 15¢ in the ‘60s) which has been scanned into High-Def for future generations to enjoy, an audio-only interview with Stuart “One-Brow” Whitman himself; a clip from a vintage Fox Movietone News reel, and two vintage trailers (one in English, the other in Spanish).
Two tangible extras built-in with the Digibook include a 24-page booklet and two reproductions of the film’s original artwork.
The bottom line here: The Comancheros is one highly recommended movie. You owe it to yourself to see this one, “mon-sewer.” And, should you already have the regular ol’ DVD version of the film, you surely owe it to yourself to pick up this magnificent Blu-ray release.
