    Someone posted on a Judy Garland forum that the dvd of Summer Stock is missing a tiny bit of dialogue during the "Dig, Dig...For Your Supper" number. Gene Kelly and Phil Silvers yell out "Charge!", but it's not on the remastered disc. Can someone with the SS dvd confirm whether or not the dialogue was included? Thanks!

    It's true, the line is missing.

    After closer examination, the entire film is a hair out of sync, too.

    If this is the case, maybe WB should fix the problem.

    I doubt that will happen, but it would be nice, since the visual end of the transfer is so beautiful.

    The degree to which the sound is off is very slight. Most people probably wouldn't even notice, but I'm psycho-hyper-sensitive to sync.

    I just tried the disc on four different players. Two have perfect sync and two are a hair off. I guess it's a player issue, not a disc issue. Sorry for the incorrect info.
