Does anyone have any recommendations on Pre-Vatican II bibles with good footnotes or any Bible Commentaries? I'm looking for something simple but also relies on the Church fathers or Saints. I've seen the Orthodox Study Bible and its footnotes (which seem good in my opinion) but I was wondering if there was any Catholic equivalent.

Or free at Internet Archive, tho' the whole Internet Archive site seems to be down right now.
Echo,
if you have either an IOS or Android phone/tablet, pick up iPieta, which has the Douay-Rheims Bible, Hydock Bible (D-R plus commentaries), et cetera, for,IIRC, 2.99. They also have a free version (not as in having ads or extremely limited function), called iVerbum. You can find them here: iPieta.

Haydock Commentary as others have said:

The other would be St. Thomas' commentaries:

If you click one of the icons at the top it will list the options.
St. Thomas' biblical commentaries are superb

Anything more recent but still doctrinally sound?
