  1. I recently purchased the DVD The Bridge on the River Kwai. The DVD says it is 168 mins long but there is only one DVD. When I open up the DVD it shows 121 mins. What am I missing here? The box came sealed with one disc.

    You probably bought a bad copy from ebay or just missing the last disc,go to where you bought and ask for another one.

  3. The long time probably refers to the Bridge on the River Kwai (Two-Disc Collector's Edition).. you must have gtton a normal movie disk version .. or there might be a menu of extra videos accounting for the 47 minutes ... like making.. or deleted scenes..

    Or yours could be a edited version to fit a 2 hour version like they use on tv

    I have the UK version of the 2 disk edition. The box states the runtime of the feature as 155 minutes. Guess the lower time is due to PAL speedup.

    But I just had a thought. Id your disk pressed or burnt ? You have not read that 120 minutes on the physical disk without actually playing it ?

    Have we heard from the OP since the first post ?

    I would like to understand where he obtained this disk.
