The first three James Bond films received the Criterion laserdisc treament in 1991.
Producer "Cubby" Broccoli was enraged by the commentary tracks and had the discs recalled. Rumor has it that he was generally upset at the openness with which various subjects were discussed. They included but weren't limited to budget mismanagement, the endangerment of crew, and various errors made in the films.
Then again, the coarse language that we wouldn't blink at today in a commentary track would've been considered controversial in 1991.
What really sent him over the edge, though, was an implication that Ian Fleming was an alcoholic.
As a result, the tracks were locked away on out of print discs in a dead format for 20 years. In 2011, The 007 Dossier posted all three tracks for public consumption, since Eon Productions is never going to release them officially. The HMSS Weblog goes into some detail as to the whole fracas that led to the legal threat and recall.
