Billy Crystal's loving tribute to the record-breaking Yankee season of 1961 comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include biographies of the cast and crew, as well as Maris and Mantle, a making-of featurette, the original trailer, and a breakdown of the home runs hit by Maris and Mantle during that historical summer. Film and baseball enthusiasts should both find much to enjoy on this DVD release of 61*.
