Region 1 now has a 2-disc “Ultimate Edition” of the film. Interestingly the so-called featurettes on our R4 disc are included as hidden “Easter eggs” on the R1.
The R1 Ultimate Edition Misses out on:
- Nothing (I couldn’t find any mention of the short Q&A videos but if it’s as well hidden as on our R4 disc then it wouldn’t surprise me if they are hidden there as well).
The R4 15th Anniversary Edition misses out on:
- Commentary with choreographer Kenny Ortega, assistant choreographer and actress Miranda Garrison, director of photography Jeff Jur, costume designer Hilary Rosenfeld, and production designer David Chapman.
- Trivia Track
- Dirty Dancing Live in Concert (This was actually included on the previous R4 release)
- Jennifer Grey Screen Test
- Emile Ardolino Tribute
- More trailers
Clearly the R1 Ultimate Edition is the version of choice for fans of the film.
