According to Harold Ramis on the Commentary, he claims that he wanted to score the movie to Pink Floyd music but the studio wouldn't allow him to do that.

Caddyshack is one of the best comedies of all time and that's speaking from someone who isn't even from the era that this movie is from (I was actually born 8 months after the movie hit theaters.).  Now, June 8 sees the release of the blu-ray, which should be the highest quality version we will ever be able to decipher with our human eyes.

QUALITY:
Great, as far as 30 year old movies go.  The picture is grainy a lot but it's a "clear" grainy that is actually impressive as it wasn't filmed with anything close to high definition cameras.  In fact, I think the cameras in most cell phones are higher definition than this movie was filmed on.

BONUS FEATURES:
Featurette, trailer and a new documentary celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the film.

The "restrospective" documentary is surprisingly watchable and you will only find it on this blu-ray edition...for now.  The clarity of the picture and sound  are fantastic for a movie of this age and relatively low budget.  The movie still stands tall as an amazing slapstick comedy that kicked off the 80s in a way that couldn't have been written better.
