In this 28 minute Making of featureette, located as an extra on the DVD of the original "Cape Fear", we learn of the genesis of how the movie was adapted by the novel 'The Executioners', as well as the casting, why the name for the movie was changed, . (It features interviews with Director J. Lee Thompson and star Gregory Peck (both of which have sadly since passed on). A few interesting anecdotes are scattered throughout (Such as how Thompson desperately regretted that Hayley Mills couldn't do the film and some others) All in all I enjoyed watching this.

My Grade: B
