BEWARE. Some copies have a pan and scan version of 'Secrets

"The material on these DVDs would get 5 stars, but I've given it 3 because of some mistakes by Disney.
To start off I want to warn everyone that there appears to have been a mistake during the production of this DVD. The last reel of 'Secrets of Life' was originally in cinemascope and some copies of this title indeed do show this in cinemascope with a message at the beginning of the movie forewarning the viewer that the film will change to widescreen near the end of the film. However some copies of this title do not have this and the footage is pan and scan. So it will probably be luck of the draw as to which one you get! Hopefully Disney will offer a disc replacement program for all of those unhappy people!
Aside from that issue this is a wonderful collection of Disney True Life Adventures. The 2 features are wonderful 'Secrets of Life' really is stunning in every way and 'Perri' being a true life fantasy based upon the novel by Felix Salten (who wrote Bambi) has a much more of a Disney film feel to it than the slighty more educational nature of the True Life Adventures.
Since the contents are already listed above I won't bother listing them again let me just say these films are truly entertaining and wonderful in every way and the bonus features are so in depth and so informative it's untrue!
One negative (aside from the fact that some people will get an incorrectly framed version of 'Secrets of Life') is that the Disneyland show 'Adventure in Wildwood Heart' is presented in black and white, yet when it is being discussed in the bonus features the clips are in color! If color footage of it survives, why was this not provided instead of the black and white version? Disney make stupid decisions!"
Secrets of Life!

"I know of this film only through a richly illustrated book for children, Secrets of Life, with photographs from the film by the Disney Studio. I borrowed the book several times from the library simply for its wonderful photographs of the life of bees. One sequence struck me-how bees do a 'dance' to 'tell' other bees in the hive where a good source of nectar(a field of flowers) is. According to Roy Disney the film looks better than it did when originally released. According to other reviewers the movie includes lovely time lapse photography of flowers accompanied by the classical piece, Bolero. Nature lovers, rejoice! This set also includes Perri, the life of a squirrel, which was also well received."
Perri Lives Again

"My mom has told me all her life about seeing the movie "Perri" when she was a little kid and how much that movie just blew her mind because it was a full length movie in color about nature. It was nice to finally be able to share Perri with her, and any kids (and adults) who love nature and animals will instantly connect with Perri the squirrel and her crazy adventures. I didn't get to see any of the rest of the disc, but getting to share that movie with my mom and watch her face as she watched it was worth every penny. My mom assures me that the rest of the collection is a blast."
