Home Video Extra Features

Re-released in 2003 as a Deluxe Edition, lowly Rudy’s high hopes are presented in high quality digital video and Dolby Digital sound. The two-disc set includes the inspiring motion picture sound track, as well as original trailers and featurettes. While the bonus materials are rather sparse, there is something included that is very worthwhile… an interview with the real Rudy. It is touching to listen to him recount his own tale, with tears in his eyes.
