Dances With Wolves SE - Winter of 2003 - 2 Disc set - 4 hour version a whole hour of added footage. Bonuses with these two discs;
     Disc 1 - This has added commentary by Kevin and Jim Wilson with the added footage.  This is also a two sided disc.  This added footage explains why Fort Sedgewick is deserted.  And a unique look at how the Sioux embraced Lt. Dunbar into their tribe as one of their own. There is one scene that I love in this version and that is Wind in His Hair explaining to Dances With Wolves how he must come up with a dowry to marry Stands With a Fist and how Kicking Bird must accept it in order for them to marry.
     An second commentary is with the Director of Photography, Dean Semler and Editor, Neal Travis.
     But wait there are hidden gems in this Disc 1 on Side B you have Easter Eggs.  If you click above the Main Menu you will find hidden graphics, each graphic is a hidden behind the scenes clip.  Here is what you get with the Easter Egg;
     Indian on a Horse -  the behind the scenes of working with the Confederate re-enactors and the suicide run scene.
     Feather - Kevin directing Timmons death scene
     Buffalo - Kevin being shown how the mechanical buffalo works
     Tee Pee - Kevin, cast and crew working out the hatchet to the chest of the Union Soldiers who had captured Dances with Wolves.
     Disc 2 - This is a totally extras disc.  It includes The Creation of an Epic - Retrospective Documentary that is a very unique look at the making of  Dances including the first day and Kevin's very first setup as a director and how he set it up all wrong.  To me this takes a lot of courage to put something like that out there.
   Dances with Wolves - Photo Montage - done by still photographer on Dances Ben Glass with introduction to all of the stills.

    But wait there is another Easter Egg on this Disc 2 also.  Go above the main menu again;
    Rearing Horse -  Second Wind  a film put together by Neal Travis that was shown to the cast and crew of Dances to show them how they look on film and how the film was progressing.
