This is the featurette on the DVD of The Trouble With Harry. It consists of interviews, clips of the film and stills from the making of it. We only hear from Forsythe as far as the actors go, and I have no clue why this is; surely it would have been interesting to hear from MacClaine! What? I didn't call you Shirley. Her name is nevermind. It is nice to hear from the ones we do get, though. John's impersonation of Hitchcock(R.I.P.) is great, and we do get a few examples of his sardonic wit. They talk about the music, and how miserable Bernard Hermann and the orchestra were, because he had very high standards and they didn't live up to them. The sense of humor is also gone into, and they discuss how it did better in Europe than in America, because of the attitude towards death and black comedy. Or to be more direct and less politically correct, we're less tense than they are on the subject. This does spoil the movie. It has a 31 minute running time sans credits, and one more with them. There is disturbing content in this. I recommend this to any fan of Alfred. 6/10
