The Amazing Road to 'Move Over, Darling' was an enjoyable short doc on the previous versions of this particular movie
This short doc on the Move Over, Darling DVD recounts the original source for this movie as Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem "Enoch Arden" in which a man is missing for 10 years as his wife waits for him and refusing the hand of another man for most of that time. That would be filmed by D.W. Griffith in 1911 of which a scene from Part 2 of that was shown here. It also mentions the first comedy version called My Favorite Wife of which no clips were shown. We then are told of Marilyn Monroe's version called Something's Got to Give which became uncompleted because of her lateness and health problems which eventually resulted in her death which then led Fox to recast as the movie I mentioned at the beginning of this review. Parallel scenes are then provided of both versions. This, and another extra called Day vs. Monroe, were enjoyable bonuses on the MOD disc. So that's a recommendation of them both.
