DVD reviews: ‘History of the Eagles’

Henry Diltz/SHOWTIME

HISTORY OF THE EAGLES Hate the band or love it, you can’t dispute that the Eagles were the kings of California rock. “Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975)” has sold upwards of 32 million copies. This three-disc set, produced by Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney, includes four hours of previously unseen footage. Disc one follows the band through its ’70s heyday. Disc two takes them through post-breakup acrimony, reunion tours, and on to the present. Disc three comprises a complete 1977 concert, at the height of their “Hotel California” fame. (Jigsaw Productions, $34.99; $39.99, Blu-ray; $299.99, super deluxe limited edition)

FUNNY GIRL For her movie debut, Barbra Streisand reprised the title role in the Broadway musical that sealed her stardom. The movie made her a screen star, too. Streisand won the 1968 best actress Oscar for her performance as comedienne Fanny Brice. Extras: featurettes on the making of the film and Streisand’s early years as a performer. (Sony, $19.99, Blu-ray)

THE DETAILS Tobey Maguire is a Seattle obstetrician married to Elizabeth Banks. Laura Linney plays their loony neighbor. What seems like a comedy of yuppie desperation quickly becomes something . . . odder. “The Details” is its own flavor. That flavor may not be all that palatable, but uniqueness is rare and deserving of attention. (Anchor Bay, $24.98; $29.99, Blu-ray)


ETHEL Rory Kennedy, Robert and Ethel Kennedy’s youngest child, directed this lively and loving documentary chronicling her mother’s life. Inevitably, and more interestingly, it’s also a partial biography of her father. Extras: interview with filmmaker. (HBO, $19.98, available now)
