The Criterion Collection’s double feature release of the “The Killers” has a rarity on its DVD, as it is probably the only Criterion release to have any real hidden features.
To get to it, insert the first disc of the DVD set in your player, featuring director George Siodmak’s version of “The Killers.” When the Main Menu comes up, select the menu entry “Case Study” and you will be taken to the menu for the disc’s bonus features. Now select “Siodmak Trailers” and then highlight the entry for “Cobra Woman.” Now press the “Left” arrow key on your remote control and then press “Enter.” You will now be treated to a trailer for one of the funniest noir-spoof movies ever made, Steve Martin’s “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid”.
