To start off I want to warn everyone that there appears to have been a mistake during the production of this DVD. The last reel of 'Secrets of Life' was originally in cinemascope and some copies of this title indeed do show this in cinemascope with a message at the beginning of the movie forewarning the viewer that the film will change to widescreen near the end of the film. However some copies of this title do not have this and the footage is pan and scan. So it will probably be luck of the draw as to which one you get! Hopefully Disney will offer a disc replacement program for all of those unhappy people!
Aside from that issue this is a wonderful collection of Disney True Life Adventures. The 2 features are wonderful 'Secrets of Life' really is stunning in every way and 'Perri' being a true life fantasy based upon the novel by Felix Salten (who wrote Bambi) has a much more of a Disney film feel to it than the slighty more educational nature of the True Life Adventures.
Since the contents are already listed above I won't bother listing them again let me just say these films are truly entertaining and wonderful in every way and the bonus features are so in depth and so informative it's untrue!
One negative (aside from the fact that some people will get an incorrectly framed version of 'Secrets of Life') is that the Disneyland show 'Adventure in Wildwood Heart' is presented in black and white, yet when it is being discussed in the bonus features the clips are in color! If color footage of it survives, why was this not provided instead of the black and white version? Disney make stupid decisions!
Contrary to the impression you might get from the art on the tin canister that houses the two discs in volume 4, this is not an undersea themed collection. In fact, if anything, I see this as a "little creatures" collection (think birds, squirrels, fish, plants, and lots of insects), volcanoes not withstanding. There are two True-Life Adventure feature films (though neither quite reaches 80 minutes) on disc one, and among many Bonus Features on disc two, there is a True-Life Adventures featurette (just over half an hour).Read more ›
