An undisputed classic of horror cinema, Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby, which marked its 45th anniversary this year, belongs in any serious film fan's collection. While DVD and Blu-ray releases have included archival footage from the production in their bonus features, the short film Mia and Roman – which was released in 1968 after Rosemary wrapped – is the most interesting snapshot of the period in which the film was made.
 
Recently showcased on the blog Dangerous Minds, the 23-minute documentary, directed by Shahrokh Hatami, covers every aspect of the production – from Polanski's meticulous directing method to Farrow's eccentric take on her very challenging role. It includes candid interviews and personal anecdotes about the director and actors, offering some fascinating insights and humorous (or sometimes just plain goofy) moments.
