Good commentary. Some might find Rudy Behlmer to be on the boring side, but you can't deny the fact that the man knows his movies. While he does occasionally refer to things on screen, the track is mostly non-screen specific. It's more of an audio documentary as the man just unloads about four hours worth of production facts and interesting tidbits on us. Again, maybe not for everyone, but if you love the film or want to know how they made one of the greatest movies of all time, it's worth the listen.

This is one of the worst commentaries I've ever heard. Behlmer is a snore. I am fairly certain that he is just reading a sheet of prepared facts throughout the entire film -- and he does nothing to describe this fact. I prefer a commentator who seems like he's actually speaking to the listener. I know that some don't like film history commentators, but I don't have any problem with that. I just don't want to hear someone read from a text book for four hours -- put some life into it, Behlmer!
