    I haven't gotten the new dvd of High Society. I have the widescreen stereo laserdisc and it has a prescreen Overture (before the film starts - NOT the music behind the credits.) Is this music on the new DVD?

    Great ! This is a must buy when you consider the lack of classic musicals on DVD.

    I compared the new DVD to the laser disc and the DVD shows more picture information (about %10 is missing on the laser disc) on the left side. The top and right side are about the same. The bottom is the same in some scenes and has info removed on the DVD in others.

    Just an update here. I am pulling the trigger on High Society (can't get enough of Grace Kelly) because deepdiscountdvd.com has it for just over $11 shipped!
