By the time Quentin Tarantino got to Jackie Brown, an overlong Elmore Leonard adaptation, he already had plenty of cameras on his tail. As a result, the special edition DVD is just as ephemera-packed, with plenty of on-set footage, TV specials, and deleted scenes (the movie itself remains an enjoyable diversion, buoyed by Robert Forster’s somber turn as an aging bail bondsman). The disc’s coolest offering is a collection of vintage movie trailers featuring Forster and costar Pam Grier in such midnight-screening staples as ”Alligator” and ”The Big Doll House.” It’s a fitting ode to the director’s video-scholar roots, and a reminder of what independent film was like before the early ’90s, when the geeks inherited the earth.
