Get the Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and UltraViolet on October 1st Which means you can get it NOW! Right now you can waltz down the yellow brick road in actual 75th anniversary style. 3D. We received a sample and can’t wait to watch it. We’re going to have to break into our next door neighbors house because they have the 3D tv, we haven’t gone completely 3D yet. But I look forward to it. The Wizard of Oz is a childhood favorite of mine. We watched it almost every year.
The sepia-tone Kansas sequences are startlingly sharp and clear, and the Technicolored world "Over the Rainbow" is truly dazzling. I found myself fascinated by details I had never noticed before: the glittering corn stalks in the Scarecrow’s field; the mirror-like floors of the Emerald City; the polished buttons on the guardsmen’s uniforms. Incredibly, even the individual grains of red sand in the Witch’s hourglass stood out and glistened! All these minor-but-sumptuous visual details served to heighten the magical spell that the film has always woven, enhancing the performances, the story, and the music. They did an amazing job transferring The Wizard of OZ into high definition. It’s a must see for yourself.
