Overall, this bonus feature on the "Field Of Dreams" two-disc "Anniversary Edition" DVD was a bit disappointing.
I had high hopes of some interesting comments with Kevin Costner talking baseball with three Hall Of Fame players. However, nothing really memorable was said and one of the players, to me, "hogged" the show. That was George Brett, who certainly loves a microphone. I would much rather have heard more from the other three guys, particularly the best player of the three: Johnny Bench. Brett Saberhagen was a good guy and seems to come off as the most intelligent of the three ballplayers.
Costner was excellent, a humble host for the three players. His analysis of the movie was far better than any of the players but that's understandable since the ballplayers were simply fans of the movie while Costner lived-and- breathed the movie by making it.
It was more interesting seeing some of the movie's star house. It's pretty nice, as you could imagine. Anyway, I would recommend all of the other bonus features on this DVD package before this one. People who love baseball history, as I do, aren't going to get any insight in this one.
