Complaints force Spielberg's masterpiece Schindler's List to be re-released on DVD only weeks after its UK disc debut. Universal decided to re-issue the film after angry fans complained about the lack of "comedy out-takes" on the bonus disc.
A statement released on Universal's website explains the move. "We now recognise that the decision not to include a 'comedy out-takes' feature on the bonus disc was a bad move. We all know how much people love comedy out-takes. The consensus was that Schindler's List is a serious film and the public wouldn't want to see the actors fluffing their lines, bursting out laughing, or falling over during takes. We were wrong. And we're sorry.'
The new out-takes feature is said to include footage of Stephen Spielberg turning up on set wearing a very funny hat. Liam Neeson recalled the moment in a rare interview with Jonathan Ross last year.
"It was a very funny hat," the mega star said. "All the cast and crew were laughing. Ben (co-star Kingsly) laughed so hard he poohed himself. I think we got that on tape too."
Schindler's List: ReDelivered is out Friday 25th May.
