The extras are top notch with voiceover commentaries over each film available, from which you can learn a lot.
There is a singalong option and I thought it was a nice touch to include an option whereby you can just play all the musical numbers.
Its true that the Todd AO version lacks some quality but I found this only a minor thing, it is so nice to see the new version.
All in all you could not ask for more.
Disc 1 is the Blu-Ray of the Todd-AO version
Disc 2 is the Blu-Ray of the Cinemascope version
Disc 3 is the DVD of the Cinemascope version
Disc 4 is the DVD of the Todd-AO version
(2 different versions of the movie were filmed).
The 2 Blu-Ray discs are marked as Region A (USA) only, but play on both my Region B (European) Panasonic players.
The 2 DVDs are marked as Region 1 (USA) only and do NOT play on Region 2 (European) players.
... a bit bizarre, that!
The Blu-Ray of the Todd-AO version DOES look stunning! - whereas the previous DVD version didn't.
Many younger viewers will never have seen the original TODD-AO Road Show version and I'm afraid will not be impressed with this offering.The CinemaScope version (to be found on Disc 1 of this 2 Disc issue) is excellent for its age and the DVD is worth having for this alone as previous issues were dreadful pan and scan versions.
The music however is a delight and the narration from Shirley Jones is a welcome extra. If you have or are about to order the new Special Edition of 'SOUTH PACIFIC', which also contains the TODD-AO version, you will see the quality that made TODD-AO so exciting - it is excellent. What a pity this print of OKLAHOMA doesn't come near to the same quality.
Update: Having now lived with the TODD-AO version since its Region 2 issue in March, I have to admit I prefer it to the CinemaScope version. Tweak your TV a little and its completely enjoyable.
This is a production that should NOT be missed. If you love Rogers and Hammerstein's musicals, you will DEFINITELY love this video.

Gordon Mcrea and Shirley Jones team up again for another magical musical. Beautiful looking Todd-AO version. This U.S. blu-ray plays on our U.K players. Read morePublished 12 days ago by TOPPS
