Other features

I like the look of MGM DVDs and The Man in the Iron Mask continues theirhigh quality releases. This one qualifies as a special edition as itincludes a commentary from Randall Wallace (the film's writer anddirector), conceptual drawings for the iron mask and storyboards andother concept art.

These features are packaged with a very attractive menu design thatplays a minute loop of the film's soundtrack. There is no animation,but the art is attractive and keyed to the film.

The transfer is excellent: the colors rich, the images sharp and all ofthe action sequences well transferred. The sound is specialstrength-the music and effects track add a nice dimension to this periodfilm.
