Update: No new Blu-ray release for SCROOGE. What they do with the digital is anyone's guess. If they simply pull the BD master for the digital chances are the overture will be omitted.
An overture is played before the movie proper begins. For most Roadshow presentations and special films, there is often an overture and an entr'acte before the second half if there is an intermission. Overtures were normally played with a closed curtain and the curtain opened up and the feature began when the overture was over. Among the many films with an overture: Ben Hur (1959), Spartacus (1960), Oklahoma! (1955), The Sand Pebbles (1966), Camelot (1967), Gone With The Wind (1939), Duel In The Sun (1946), Since You Went Away (1944), South Pacific (1958), Grand Prix (1966), El Cid (1961), How The West Was Won (1962) to name just a few, all of which are replicated on their blu ray incarnations. The last film to have an overture was Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (2015) when it played its 70 millimeter Roadshow engagement.I need musical education. Is this musical piece supposed to show up during opening credits or end credits or elsewhere?
