This is one of those amazing films that doesn't fail to enchant through to adulthood. I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting Dorothy's journey through Oz, being scared by the Wicked Witch of the West and being charmed by Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion. This is definitely one for adults and children alike. The musical numbers are also just as entertaining this time around. They have done a fantastic job cleaning up the picture, the quality is topnotch, the transition from black and white to colour is even more startling. There is a second disc with some fab extras, including deleted scenes, the story of other actors who were almost cast and several behind the scenes documentaries, including interviews with the Munchkins! A great classic to add to your DVD collection.

Finally The Wizard Of Oz gets a region 2 release on DVD.I've had the region 1 release for over a year,and i trust that the good people who decide these things have included the "marveloz array of special features" that are contained on the one single disc,yet there are more interesting and informative extras than most 2-disc sets now filling the local dvd stores shelves.
Everyone knows the story, everyone will have seen Dorothy,Scarecrow,Tinman,Cowardly lion and Toto follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City.This movie is a must show at Christmas for the T.V schedulers,and now it really is a must have DVD for the rest of us.
So what do you get? Aside that is from a quality restoration with sound and picture unsurpassed,you even get 5.1 sound.Well a documentary on the making,which includes interviews with cast and crew and isn't your usual DVD promo but a proper, informative and thought provoking look at the land of Oz.Also 5 trailers- teaser,re-issue included,out-takes, deleted scenes,and an absolute plethora of behind the scenes which include home movies on the set,special effects,costume and make up tests,footage from the Academy Awards of 1939,excerpts from the original book series and interviews dating back to 1979 with key cast members.
So,this is a well crafted and put together disc that you can enjoy over and over again.A classier film you will rarely find.Go get a copy and enjoy.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
With three discs in this boxed set this is the definitive edition of the Wizard of Oz to buy. The first disc contains the original film and interviews. The second disc contains a number of documentaries on the making of the film. The third disc contains four older film versions as well as a documentary. Most of the documentaries were made in 1990, no doubt to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the films making.

Even now nearly seventy years later, this is the of the best films you can buy for your children. As an adult its still superb entertainment and contains one of the greatest songs ever written (Over the Rainbow). The film is from the golden age of Hollywood, lavish sets, great special effects (for the era) and marvellous performances from the main actors and actresses.

This has literally hours and hours of extras as well as the original 98min film. At its current price this is one of the best value DVD boxed sets you can buy. This is timeless entertainment that all the family (except perhaps a few grumpy teenagers!) will enjoy.

I have the R1 edition of this, aswell as every other version available to mankind and I would like to say this is the definitive edition. The original Oz DVD release came with more extras than I thought possible on one disc, but this surpasses even that. There are replicas of original movie tickets, invites, photos, plus more extras than you can shake a fighting tree at. It even includeds programmes made for satellite tv on Oz. If you don't buy this, beware before somebody drops a house on you!

The Wizard of Oz is truly a classic movie, with a wonderful story, picturesque setting and humorous characters. It has all the ingredients, which made it not only a great movie, but remembered as all time great.
With this DVD edition, you can experience the art of classic cinema making at its sheer best. This is a DVD, which I am truly proud of and treasure it the most. Great stuff and worth buying.

Format: Blu-ray
Picture sharp and grainless, colour shines with a luster rarely seen in new films, 5.1 DTS MAster HD track faultless (if a little front heavy) and the 3-D? Well its good. Rather like the 3-D Titanic, lots of depth giving a great sense of realism, but nothing flying out of the screen at you and not in the class of the Jurassic Park 3D make-over. That being said, its amazing how a film made in 1938 can be made to look so good and as if it had been orignally made in 3D. What would audiences have made of it it in the 1930's?

A tale to warm your heart that delights young and old alike! Innovative for its time, full of marvellous special effects and magic camera work that still boasts wonder - even today! This movie has gone into the archives as a legend - along with many of its stars - several of which who would find it impossible to top during the rest of their lifetime; Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Margaret Hamilton and of course Judy Garland. They would all fail to shake off the landmark that was 'The Wizard Of Oz' - their best remembered achievements. Margaret Hamilton was wonderful as the Wicked Witch of the West', and let's not forget 'Toto' - one of the longest performing dogs in the movie industry!

Simply magic!
