Don't skip over the interviews with the film's editor Anne Coates and composer Laurence Rosenthal. Coates (7 minutes) has some good stories, and Rosenthal (12 minutes) discusses the influences on his Oscar-nominated score and how he had to teach Gregorian chant to Burton ("He was one of these people whom you really can't teach anything. He had this characteristic that you can only remind him of something he already knows. But he didn't know how to sing Gregorian chant."). In addition to a photo gallery and the four-and-a-half-minute theatrical trailer, MPI's long-delayed DVD looks better than many major-studio classics. --David Horiuchi

More King Henrys on DVD
The conflicts of Church and Crown are played out between the now changed Becket and the now bitter Henry.
There's something beautiful about a film that surprises you by defying your expectations and Becket is a great example of one of those films.
While Thomas Becket's role played by Richard Burton is a fine performance, Peter O'Toole in his role of Henry II is just attonishing.

This was a movie I saw as a teenager and wanted to watch it again. It is an interesting story about two very close friends played by Peter O'Toole and Richard Burton. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Tina North

In my opinion, simply one of the very best films ever made. A movie that stands the test of time as I first saw it as a high-school senior 50 yrs. ago.Published 1 month ago by John Ector

Good question Joe. Adding to it is whether or not there was and will be a restored Overture and Exit Music along with the Entr'Acte. I've never seen Laurence Rosenthal's soundtrack as a CD release (even as an import or bootleg) so it is hard to say. Guess we'll know after May 15.
