Comes with a very interesting insert addressing the banned commentary for Criterion's recalled CAV edition. Full text below:

In 1991 when The Criterion Collection originally released the first three Bond films - Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Goldfinger - each title had a secondary audio track recorded specifically for the laserdisc release. We recorded the following people discussing the Bond films in general and the movies on which each had worked: directors Guy Hamilton and Terence Young, writer Richard Maibaum, editor Peter Hunt, and production designer Ken Adam. Unfortunately, MGM has unlimited right of approval on all Criterion releases of their films, and together with the Bond producers, has exercised that right and forced us to remove the secondary track from our laserdiscs thereby attempting to censor what these filmmakers and historians have said.
Because we feel it's important to enable these people to be heard, we are making available the audio cassettes of the commentary tracks for those Criterion customers who would like to receive them. If you are interested in receiving an audio cassette containing the audio commentary for this or any of the Bond films available from Criterion, please return the attached card together with your payment of $10.00 (Check, MC, VISA, AMEX) to cover duplication, shipping and handling."

The lack of specificity regarding the title "From Russia With Love" and the phrasing, "the audio commentary for this or any of the Bond films", suggests this insert was inserted in all the reissued CLV Bond films.
