That does sound better than I feared, though I wish the two other films were Blus too

Quite. I'm not entirely sure why these two were selected specifically, and both are useless to me since they're in a set Paramount put out in the UK years ago. It's actually rather disheartening that Cinderfella won't be joining the four Tashlin-Lewis discs Olive put out. I'll be buying this though and won't be feeling ripped off since the additional tat is surprisingly appealing.

Special Features per press release:

Jerry Lewis: No Apologies NEW! An intimate look at the artist who has entertained and educated audiences for more than eight decades
Directors Letter NEW! A letter specially written by Jerry to present this new collection
Recreated “Being A Person” book: 96-pages made up of drawings and quotes inspired/written by Jerry Lewis and drawn by his personal illustrator. 250 copies of this book were originally made and distributed to members of the cast and crew of The Nutty Professor after the director heard of general conflicts among them.
CD: Phoney Phone calls 1959-1972: Years before the Jerky Boys were harassing unwitting shop clerks, housewives and businessmen, Lewis perfected the art, as these recordings show. Released in 2001 on the Sin-Drome label, this is a collection of private prank calls secretly recorded by Jerry Lewis over the years.
48-Page Storyboard Book
44-Page Cutting Script with Jerry’s notes
Commentary by Jerry Lewis and Steve Lawrence
The Nutty Professor: Perfecting The Formula Behind-The-Scenes Footage
Jerry Lewis at Work
Jerry at Movieland Wax Museum with commentary by son Chris Lewis
Deleted Scenes

Bloopers
Screen Tests
Outtakes
Original Mono Track
Trailers

Also, here's a nice pic of the open box:

This pic says $50 MSRP, which is contrary to the text of the press release saying $55.

It's $35 pre-order on amazon.com, which is not bad at all, really.

1.5 stars seems to be pretty generous.

I've heard good things about this adaptation, so now I'll finally get to see it, and in hi-def too!

But the Blu-ray I really want to see released is the brilliant The Parallax View.

I said I didn't think much of it once on the board and everyone else jumped on me in disagreement. If I ever have three and a half hours to kill maybe I'll revisit it. I can 10% co-sign wishing for a Blu of the Parallax View though!

I didn't like it, either, Domino. I'm hoping and praying that Bondarchuk's adaptation (which I consider the greatest literary adaptation of all time) will SOMEDAY make it to Blu-ray.

Interestingly enough, some Slavicists I've spoken to prefer the King Vidor adaptation over the Bondarchuk. Personally, I feel that the Bondarchuk adaptation is a mighty impressive piece of filmmaking, but I'm willing to approach Vidor's with an open mind. It does have Audrey Hepburn, and I've heard the set pieces are impressive.

The Bondarchuk version might be a long shot for Blu-ray. Apparently the surviving elements are badly compromised, so who knows whether they could produce a hi-def master that people would accept on Blu-ray. I for one would like to see a better restoration, though, and perhaps now it might be technically possible.

Though he's about twenty years too old for the role Fonda's probably acting wise the highlight of the film though his role also is the most dramatic without going big so I guess that's bound to happen.
