All bonus materials on the Standard Definition version will be included on the high definition versions and will be available for $28.99 SRP. Both titles are also available on HD DVD for $28.99 SRP. Bruce Lee, who starred in "Enter the Dragon" was one of the greatest martial arts/action stars in the history of film. In this, his signature and most popular film, Lee plays an intelligence agency recruit who goes undercover as a Karate tournament contestant to infiltrate a drug trafficking ring. "The Dirty Dozen" Lee Marvin portrays tough-as-nails Major John Reisman, assigned to command a squad of misfits on a suicide mission against Nazi brass on the eve of D-Day in occupied France.
