Hello Mr Finn-- Thank you so much for the great TODD-AO transfers we have had. THE SOUND OF MUSIC--SOUTH PACIFIC--HELLO DOLLY---CLEOPATRA--AGONY AND ECSTASY--OKALAHOMA I just played DOLLY the other night again and every time I watch one of these TODD-AO productions, all I can say is WOW!  Any chance of more WOW in the next year or so?

I asked Fox Classics on their facebook page if we were getting anymore TODD-AO blurays in 2015, and I received a thumbs up, So who knows.

Here's hoping for the complete with overture, intemission and entr'acte STAR!  I've seen Fox's 70mm restoration print twice in LA and the overture was gone for some strange reason.  The rest of the print was complete and  looked and sounded incredible.

The curtain with the names on it while the music was playing was gone? How odd.

They were gone both times, but it was the same print, I'm sure.  The film started with the Fox fanfare.  Actually, as much as I love the overture and would hate to lose it, its omission did make the first jump to widescreen within the film itself more impressive.  But don't omit it now, at this late date!
