This seems to be another "The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts" type of commentary. They start by imparting some information reagrding the beginning of the production and the circumstances of Frank Sinatra's departure from the movie; after that Redman avoids the usual film historian routine and just makes random digressions and asks questions to Jones and provokes her to tell random reminiscences, but since they are remarkably at ease and unpretentious, the commentary ends up being worth listening to.
