FINALLY! YES! And it's the original roadshow version!

Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed.

I was only watching the DVD on an upscaling player the other day, thinking of how wonderful the film would look on Blu-ray...  Warners, keep this up and I'll be a poor but very happy person.

Those are the same from the DVD release, nothing new was added for the blu-ray debut though.  WB has tons of stuff in it's archives, if only they just gave a damn and weren't so lazy most of the time.

This will be released less than a week after my birthday, so this is among the greatest of news releases for me!

 

Thank you, Warners!

The only companies adding new bonus to their releases are 3rd party licensors like Criterion or Shout Factory. The major studios only do it on the evergreen titles some of the time (such as all the WB Anniversary releases).


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Well, well, well.  Perhaps that 43rd release of The Wizard of Oz did pay for something new after all.  :P

Fans of the film have been literally begging Warners to release this on blu. So their wish is granted and guess what ..... some people still aren't satisfied. What do you want to bet when/if Raintree County finally sees the light of day on blu/DVD someone will complain about something? "Taylor's eyes aren't violet enough, Warners needs to go back and remaster this!"

I don't care about new extras, I'm just thrilled the film is finally here in HD.

To each his own, but I am so happy about this release! Much happier (ahem) than about a certain Criterion release about a Mad World (although I am happy that RAH & Co. was able to produce such a magnificent package). :)
