Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This is a special feature that accompanies the film THE BELLS ARE RINGING. While I often skip the extras on DVDs, this one is well worth seeing, as you get some interesting insights into the film--in particular, you learn that Hal Linden WAS in the film, though you probably missed him the first time! In addition to Linden's narration, the film has a few interviews but unfortunately, so many of the particulars involved with the film are now dead (such as director Minelli, Judy Holliday, Dean Martin and many others). Frank Gorshin appears in one of the last things he did before his own recent death. A good and worth seeing supplement to the film, but it sure could have been longer and more detailed--it was just too little of a really good thing.
