Muller is joined here by Susan Andrews, the daughter of Dana, in a commentary recorded with Eddie and her being together. She talks mostly about her father, naturally, but also about some of his co-stars. She is a bit clueless about other film history and I could have done without her addition. Muller comments on the title sequence, score, mistakes, camerawork and photography, the director, casting, script, film noir motifs, locations/sets, cut scenes, art direction, and Preminger skirting the production code. He also repeats the claim that Alice Faye was unhappy with the film since she thought it was being thrown to Linda Darnell. Most of the commentary is scene-specific and there are some minor pauses eg. if Muller wants us to hear particular dialogue.
