This taut and entertaining adaptation of James M. Cain's best-selling thriller gets a solid presentation for its release on DVD. The 1946 version of The Postman Always Rings Twice has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. Viewers may choose between the original English-language soundtrack and a dubbed version in French; optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish are also included. Bonus materials include a documentary on leading man John Garfield, an introduction from film historian Richard Jewell, a gallery of production photos, and trailers for both this film and the 1981 remake.
