I do know that the dress was a darker color in real life and that the blouse was washed in an ochre tint because the white would be shockingly so in Technicolor. Of course, actual colors and colors represented in early Technicolor are two different beasts (or a horse of a different color, if you will!)

Can anyone comment on the geometry discrepancies most notable in the DVD Beaver screengrabs?

The notes concede that it is not noticeable in normal viewing (i.e., when not doing a direct comparison), but which DVD image has the correct proportions?

Yes, I´ve seen images of one of the six identical dresses used for the movie,which was sold at auction this year.At first sight, I thought it was grey

Since I could not wait for the 3 disc edition and was able to get the 2 disc earlier - they sold out of the 3 disc - I wonder, is anyone contemplating buying both editions? I just might as I've decided that the extra disc plus the printed material will make it worthwhile. Besides, with two distinct covers it will be kind of nice to have each in my collection. Am I nuts?

I thought I was the only one (outside of OZ-maniacs of course!) that had this film in every format! I think I ended up with so many formats because it was one of the few films that I'd buy with those Columbia House intro packages (for the VHS club, LD club, etc)!!
