‘Good Morning Vietnam’ (1987)

Robin Williams‘ crowning achievement in hysterical excellence is the 1987 Vietnam conflict comedy-drama ‘Good Morning, Vietnam’ about a radio DJ who defies conventional means and entertains the deployed troops in a way never heard before in the US Army.  Gaining loyal listeners immediately, Armed Forces Radio disc jockey Adrian Cronauer (Williams) runs afoul of middle management and fights for his right to lighten the mood in this classic outing from director Barry Levinson.

Based on a true story of an Army DJ who attempted to bring joy to war-weary troops in Vietnam over the radio, this Blu-ray release comes with the following special features to commemorate the 25th anniversary of its release:

  • Production Diary (presented in Standard Definition, 35 minute runtime): A 6-part introspective on the making of the film (sadly, no commentary) featuring interviews with the production crew and the real life Adrian Cronauer. It also shows insight to Robin Williams‘ constant improvising of the script, something that gives this film some added magic.
  • Raw Monologue (presented in Standard Definition, 13 minute runtime): Wanna see Robin Williams go wild with improv? Here you go!
  • Original Theatrical Trailers (Standard Definition, 4 minutes)
