The set, with a $29.99 suggested retail price, contains nearly six hours of content, including the 197-minute film.

A special edition videocassette with 23 minutes of bonus material will be priced at $19.98.

The film won five Academy Awards: screenplay, cinematography, score, art direction and costume design.
