British Original is Better !
SPEAKING OF the double-disc DVD version of the original Wicker Man starring Christorpher Lee, Edward Woodward and Britt Ekland, this is now available at most record shops and even in some supermarkets at a reasonable price. At least the release of the remake has kindled some interest in the superior British product, once voted by Empire magazine as the best British horror film ever. The first disc carries the original theatrical version, an interview with Christopher Lee and a 35 minute documentary as well as some trailers for the film. Disc Two restores some lost footage in a director’s cut together with a full-length commentary from Lee, Woodward and the director, Robin Hardy.
