Title Best
Sullivan's Travels (Filmmakers Collection)R1

  Any consideration of the best version of this film on DVD begins and ends with the Criterion Collection edition which, as well as the features on the Region 4 DVD (not including the Australian critic commentary) there are:

Audio Commentary by Noah Baumbach, Kenneth Bowser, Christopher Guest and Michael McKean
Interview with director Preston Sturges' widow Sandy Sturges
Hedda Hopper radio interview with Preston Sturges
Archival audio recordings of Sturges singing his original composition "My Love" and reciting the poem "If I Were King"
Storyboards and blueprints
Production stills archive
Scrapbook of original publicity materials
Liner note essay on Sturges and Sullivan's Travels by Todd McCarthy

It also apparently sports a new digital transfer. For diehard fans of the film the Region 1 version is the one to buy.

Region 2 has a commentary by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame but no other extras.
