Finally, More American Graffiti is now available on DVD. You can get it seperately HERE but there is also a 2-pack of both films in one package available! Please buy through the links here to support my site.

American Graffiti has been released as a Special Edition DVD! The disc contains the film remastered and in anamorphic widescreen. It also has some nice features, including the original theatrical trailer and a new documentary by Laurent Bouzereau. The documentary has new interviews with lots of the cast and crew, including George Lucas, as well as some of the original screentests and behind-the-scenes footage. Unfortunately, More American Graffiti is not available on DVD, but it was re-released on video cassette in 1998 at a modest price. Considering this film is a little hard to find at most Blockbuster rental stores, your best bet to get to see this movie is to actually buy it. Click on the links below to purchase either films from Amazon.

There is also a very nice double-disc CD with all 41 of the songs from American Graffiti. There is also a more affordable truncated version with just one cd.
