Fly / Return of the Fly
What's better than one fly movie on a single DVD? The answer, according to 20th Century Fox, is two. So, the Fox Double Feature single DVD of the original The Fly from 1958 also contains the lesser-known sequel Return of the Fly from 1959. The Fly, the story of a science experiment gone horribly wrong, stars Vincent Price, Al "David" Hedison, and Patricia Owens. Having learned nothing from that misadventure, Vincent Price comes back in The Return of the Fly, which also stars Brett Halsey as another scientist who should have invested in a can of bug spray. Both films are presented in anamorphic widescreen versions with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The Fly is in color and 4.0 Surround sound, while the sequel is in black-and-white and Stereo Surround sound. In the absence of any other special features such as talent files or production notes, both films contain their original theatrical trailers. While lacking in the extras, this DVD at least gives viewers a chance to own the Return of the Fly on DVD along with its more famous cousin, since it's uncertain when the sequel would have come out on disc by itself.
