1941 (LTX,DD) - DVD
Spectacular is certainly the word for this utterly wild comedy about Wild Bill Kelso, the gung-ho fighter pilot who can't wait to get his hands on the enemy... if only he could find them. Lavish effects sequences highlight this hilarious all-star extravaganza set in Los Angeles just days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, when fear of a Japanese invasion threw the city into a state of pandemonium. Screwball characters run wild on Hollywood Boulevard as manic servicemen, zealous homeowners, teary-eyed generals, high-stepping chorus girls and bickering Nazis are thrown together in this fast-rising comic souffle that even features a send-up of Spielberg's own "Jaws" opening. Also starring Tim Matheson, Toshiro Mifune, Warren Oates, Robert Stack, Treat Williams and Nancy Allen.
Special Features Includes restored footage; making-of documentary with new interviews; Steven Spielberg's home movies and behind-the-scenes footage; theatrical trailers; outtakes; storyboards, production and publicity materials.
