Warner Archive Collection: Really Bare Bones
Posted by: Stephen Wildstrom on March 31, 2009
In a recent article about Warner Brothers Home Entertainment’s new manufactured-on-demand DVDs of classic films, I said they were bare bones, lacking extras such as outtakes or commentaries. But a reader has pointed out to me, and Warner has confirmed, that they lack something more important to a number of potential buyers: They have neither closed captions nor subtitles. This is unfortunate, because it makes this otherwise worthy effort inaccessible to customers who rely on captions or titles.
