I bought it a few days ago. Good quality picture and sound...has commentary by Bob Clark & Peter Billingsley (interesting trivia;
also the 18 minute "Another Christmas Story" catches us up with the kids in the film, and Clark too). There was mention of scenes that hit the cutting room floor, like a Flash Gordon parody "that took up a good
deal of our budget"--not sure if these will ever see the light of day.

Jean is mentioned many times (such as what it was like working with him, etc.)--prob. could have put a whole segment on that in this DVD
package. But you do get Jean reading a couple stories (no video
just audio; you look at a pic of a radio...)
