    I'm far more impressed by seeing a photo of Merrie Spaeth!

    I was there Thursday night and can't add anything more - RAH said it all. It was wonderful.Restorations of Mr Deeds Goes To Town and Stormy Weather premiered today and will make fans of these two films delirious with happiness.

    Until the film started, I couldn't see a thing with the damn paparazzi constantly shooting flash pictures of me.

    I grew up listening to Gordon McRae in the Hammerstein-but-not-Rodgers soundtrack of The Desert Song on a book of 78rpm records. At a young age (11 or 12), I really enjoyed The Riff Song.

    I also attended the Oklahoma! screening and the restoration is phenomenal, everything that RAH said it is. It looked like actors were right there in front of us, rather than on the screen. 20th century-Fox should really consider re-releasing this into theaters for a brief run; despite my love for blu-ray, I don't think even a large TV will do it justice.

    I have always thought that 70mm needed the kind of quality control that Cinerama had in its houses.

    Mike Todd tried very hard with Around the World in 80 Days and Oklahoma! But after he passed, it was up to the studios, and they did an inconsistent job, which diminished over time.

    70mm exhibition moved from being a very special event to being a slight upgrade.

    Just TWO WEEKS before this thread Explodes with comments.
    It promises to be a super exciting ride for us all.

    I'm counting down the Weeks, Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds.
    Definitely my most anticipated release for a long time.
    I'm even having it sent by speedy courier service because I can't wait an extra day.

    How much is the extra courier service, Doug? Maybe I'll switch delivery service .. if Amazon allows such changes without re-ordering and losing my special price!

    Actually, if the press release is accurate, it's still three weeks away.

    Ya know, that press release was so shoddy, I'm going to keep (positive) thinking that Amazon has the right release date. :D

    Thanks Byron.
    As a rule Anthony I would never pay this much freight for any disc, but let's face it this is no ordinary disc, this is an EVENT.
    I got the cheap deal, so to hell with the freight costs!
    I want it and I want it super fast. ;)

    Don't discuss it with the Wife mate, just go ahead and do it. (if you just change the freight and nothing else you should still get the cheaper price, but better check first)

    Doug.

    Thanks Byron and Doug ... that's about $18 more than standard postage which, in the scheme of things given the special entry price, sounds pretty cool.
    And there are some things one just should not discuss with the wife, who might just totally fail to understand the compulsive nature of the true obsessive.... though she is remarkably understanding, all things considered,
    Cheers

    I actually think that the priority rate is quite reasonable as well - considering that all the movies are counted as 1 item.

    And it's done. First time I've indulged myself with international priority shipping, but what the hell, it IS Oklahoma and Carousel!
