Product Description

Spectacularly produced, and the winner of seven Academy Awards® (1957), including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor (Alec Guinness), THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI continues to be one of the most memorable cinematic experiences of all time. Experience director David Lean’s legendary classic like never before with this 60th anniversary edition.

Additional Features

The second disc in this special-edition set includes an exclusive documentary, The Making of the Bridge on the River Kwai, which is filled with details about the extraordinary logistical problems of making a film on such a huge scale, in such a remote location. Also included are a short behind-the-scenes documentary originally released at the same time as the film, and a brief appreciation of the film by director John Milius (Big Wednesday). The final treat is a short instructional movie from the USC Film School, introducing the art of film narrative. Narrated by William Holden, and using footage from The Bridge on the River Kwai, this is an unusual but fascinating piece of film history. Biographies of the stars and filmmakers, and a collection of promotional art round out the package, making this set essential for anyone who wants to better appreciate The Bridge on the River Kwai and the remarkable story of the film's creation.
