Shame on all the litigators who have kept Jack Lemmon's laserdisc commentary from appearing on DVD: listening to this veteran player speak for an hour and a half on his craft makes you realise how fluffed-up and pretentious most 'modern actor' commentaries are by comparison. Lemmon views acting in a practical way and concedes that you need to have a love for it; he not only discusses GLENGARRY but finds parallels to several of his other films as well, along with several amusing anecdotes about the old studio system. Ever the consummate professional, he never "names names" when he has anything remotely negative to say. To my knowledge this is only one of two audio commentaries recorded by Lemmon - if you like this actor you're guaranteed to enjoy listening to him reminisce.

This is definitely a shame that this track doesn't appear on any of the newer releases of this film. It isn't so screen specific, it's more of a reflection on Lemmon's life and his career. Listening to him talk is a joy though. The most illuminating bits were when he discusses acting. When the film ends he doesn't even realize it and says "Let's run it a gain". I would've loved to hear another hour and 40 minutes of him talk. Seek this conversation out.
