I used to play the "MGM Jubilee Overture" that was included on the initial widescreen laserdisc of "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" for EVERYBODY.

I'm pretty sure it was also included in the 2-disc DVD of "Seven Brides...".

There were also Wide Screen (ie. 1.77:1) versions shot of BRIGADOON and ROSE MARIE. I saw the latter in a cinema in the '70's. Would be nice to see them released for the sake of comparison with, say, a blu ray release of these titles.

  I remember in the '70's, a cinema in Melbourne played THE ROBE for the 25th anniversary of CinemaScope. Fox mistakenly shipped out a print of the flat version (which turned up on the Blu Ray release, though in a  PIP (Picture in Picture) presentation which is not  easy to view and adequately  discern its merits/flaws.). I'm guessing they probably also did a 1.77:1 version of THE STUDENT PRINCE as it was shot in 1954. Anyone know when MGM ceased doing this? Was there a flat version of HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE made? I believe they finished that before THE ROBE.

  The JUBILEE OVERTURE is also on my LD boxed set of the THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT! movies, which was beautifully produced. Coming late to a movie in the '50's was not a good idea- unlike today!

I believe Metro ceased the dual production sometime in 1954, but I'm sure Bob Furmanek could confirm this.

 

Would love to see an anamorphic Jubilee Overture. Maybe included with a bd of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers? Wishful thinking all the way around.

Why?...if they did it once, they can do it again...(yes, wishful thinking!)
