The best extra on the DVD release of Tod Williams' The Door in the Floor is a 15-minute featurette in which author John Irving goes into some detail about the differences between novels and movies. While some of what he says is fairly obvious, the author does offer some nuggets of wisdom that any writer should find helpful. The film itself is presented in a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. The DVD also offers a commentary track recorded by Williams and a variety of people from his crew. He is full of praise for his actors. This is a solid release, but it should be made clear that those with an interest in reading the novel on which the film is based should do so before taking in the extra materials on this disc.
