Vacation is now 20 years old, and
the studio has released a 20th anniversary special edition. It has been
re-mastered in the original theatrical aspect ratio, but the best
thing about the new edition is the commentary, featuring Chevy
Chase, Randy Quaid, Producer Matty Simmons, Anthony Michael Hall,
Dana Barron, and director Harold Ramis.
I will assume every one of you has seen this
classic road trip comedy about the Griswold family's attempt to get
to Wally World in the world's ugliest station wagon, so here are
some of the points I found interesting in the commentary:
The DVD has the shower breast
exposure from D'Angelo, as well as the panties-only long shot
at the Holiday Inn swimming pool.
The 4/3 version showed much
more of her, including the fact that she was wearing panties
in the shower.
Christie Brinkley made first
film appearance as the blonde temptress in the sports car, and declined
to go nude, so we see her in a white bra. She is wearing a
skin-toned body suit in the swimming pool. Both
she and Chase seem to be treading water so you couldn't see
their clothes through the water.
