Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby worthy of deluxe new DVD release
Was Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby overrated? I don't think it was. It snuck out at the end of 2004 with so little buzz that it took us all by surprise. I saw it in the middle of the year-end blitz of award movies, and it stood on its own without any hype. It deserved every success it got. Warner Home Video has recently announced a DVD package worthy of a great film. The three-disc set will include: "James Lipton Takes on Three: Roundtable with Clint Eastwood, Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman and Moderator James Lipton, recorded the day after the Academy Awards," "Born to Fight: Examines the Parallels of the Movie to Real-Life Boxer Lucia Rijker" and "Producers Round 15: Behind the Scenes with the producers." The third disc will be the CD soundtrack, with music by Eastwood and Lennie Niehaus. I'd love to hear an Eastwood commentary track someday, but he's never done one and probably never will. A two-disc version will sell for about $30 and the three-disc version is about $40.
