RARA-AVIS: Re: DVD extras

The extras included on DVDs from the Criterion Collection are always worth a look. Their recent release of Sam Fuller's PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET contains two filmed interviews with the director, as well as an illustrated biographical essay and a text interview with star Richard Widmark. Nothing to provoke a reappraisal of the film, but they do add to your appreciation of it.

For what it's worth, here's a link to my column from Steve Lewis' Mystery*File reviewing the Criterion discs of THE KILLERS and LE CERCLE ROUGE in detail:
