    Yes, from a purist standpoint everyone should be happy with original mono. I'm the oddball because I love a good 5.1 remix. There has been no consistency with the Blu-ray exclusives as some of them have dropped the 5.1 remixes while others like Salados Amigos/Three Caballeros, The Parent Trap and all the Herbie movies have kept the 5.1 remixes while dropping the original mono. Most of the HD digital versions have the 5.1 audio and I'll be curious to see which audio will be offered on Disney+

    This is for a DVD release, but I noticed "Westward Ho, the Wagons" has disappeared from my wish list. I did a search and it no longer appears on the club site. I guess it's gone out of print?

    Or you could buy 8 titles for $65 -- enroll, fulfill, quit and be richer in the end.
    But that would mean joining one of those awful incredibly expensive "Clubs" that only exist to rip people off

    I've returned much loved movies *because* the original mono/stereo sound wasn't an option. I'm fine with new audio mixes as long as whatever the original release mix was is kept as an option.

    Randy, I was on the Disney club web site. What do I do too get a deal like that ? $12.50 for Scarecrow and another title for $24.99 ? That's an Amazing deal. Let me know please if possible. Ebay prices right now are Ridiculous ! They will eventually come down in prices. Thanks for the Info !

    But they will never come close to DMC real world Street price. I'm going to guess you were on the enrollment site? Scarecrow will not eligible as part of the initial package for around 60 days, it can be used as one of your required purchases immediately

    It's a universal part of the Membership. DMC has a constant " B1 at Regular Price 19.95 or greater, Get the rest of your eligible items equal price or less for 40/50/60% off" The percent discount varies depending on the current month and whether you have bought all your required items (Fulfilled Commitment/VIP) or still under contract.

    Ex: Current VIP offer is B1G50% (last month it was B1G60%) -- Buy one exclusive for 24.95, get all the rest for 12.49 (1 or 30)

    If you decide you want to join at some time make sure to go to the DMC Main thread here or at Bluray DMC Deal thread and grab the best Promotional Codes so you can get the best deal. If you have more than 2 required purchases with permanent Free Shipping after your initial enrollment of 6 for 13 or 7 for 22, then you are wasting money.

    For current members getting 3 copies (DMC limit per title) with the B1G50% would be $50+tax (roughly $17-18 ea) . If you don't want to join for whatever reason and expect to keep buying these, it might not be a bad thing to pair up with a current member here on the forum or bluray.com and avoid the Ebay routine all-together. A lot of these defacto pairs and triplets exist in various places to avoid the scalper places.

    Obviously Ebay prices will start to drop rather quickly once people start receiving their discs. Mine shipped Monday and should arrive by Sat or early next week. I also expect after Halloween the prices will drop -- every year the price of exclusives like Return to Oz BD, the Witch Mountain BD titles, and Mr Boogedy DVD especially tend to spike in October.

    I just received my copy of The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh and it is indeed the three-part television version, with absolutely no extras (standard for these Disney Club Exclusives). The sound is the original Mono, and the Walt Disney intro's are all 4X3.

    I watched the first 10 minutes of part 1, comparing the DVD and this blu-ray, and I can say it looks great. I do have to say, the DVD looked rather good on my Oppo. It's unfortunate they didn't offer the extras, the Leonard Maltin introductions, and the theatrical version of Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow.

    However, I am grateful they didn't just put out the theatrical version and not give us the complete Wonderful World of Disney version. If they were only going to give us one or the other, I am glad they offered us this. I think those who enjoy this film will be pleased. I know I am.

    It’s kinda funny that they gave us only the theatrical Davy Crockett in HD, and now only the television Syn in HD. No consistency. Usually there’s an internal pretzel logic to their releases that I can follow but I’m stumped here. But I’m too happy that it exists to care why :)

    The TV edit of Davy Crockett had some footage that, at the time of mastering and release, was only known to exist in B&W. That may be why they went with the movies instead.

    I honestly don't remember. About a couple of minutes at most. I do remember there was a disclaimer to expect some shots that weren't in color, but that this was the only way to reconstruct the original broadcast versions.

    All the effort expended on colorizing stuff that was never meant to be in color, such as The Shaggy Dog and The Absent-Minded Professor, but there it might actually have been justified.

    Since Disney saves everything, and the entire production was shot in color, those missing pieces very likely exist. They just need to dig them up.

    So I got my Scarecrow of Romney Marsh Blu-ray today. And I can confirm all that has been reported. Picture quality as usual is top-notch. It's a dual-layer disc. As reported, the episodes are widescreen 1.66:1, but Walt's introductions, just like the DVD are 1.33:1, so it's a little bit disappointing that they didn't make use of the widescreen intros that were separate "extras" on the DVDs. The one really bad thing is the sound. All the other Movie Club exclusives that had mono sound were Dolby Digital 2.0 at 320 kpbs, for this disc it's even worse with Dolby Digital 1.0 at 96 kbps!

    So my immediate dilemma was whether to place the 2 DVDs from the Treasures set inside the Blu-ray case or to place the Blu-ray inside the Treasures tin. I finally opted for the latter because the packaging of the Treasures set is just too nice to discard.

    Romney.

    I also received The Black Hole corrected disc. And as reported the overture is now there, but alas un-skippable. That's a pretty passive-aggressive backlash if you ask me! You want your overture? Fine! Here's your stinking overture and you'll listen to it whether you want to or not! :D

    My avatar suggests otherwise about Disney "saving everything." They may yet find more Crockett footage in color than they found in 2001, but that was based on what they could find then. Best case scenario, they're in a box somewhere in the vault mislabeled, perhaps with some other show's outtakes even. Worst case scenario, they rotted away from vinegar syndrome before they could be found rather than being actively destroyed.

    Heads up...there is a second Featured Title Selection in November. The Lion King (accept or decline) and the Santa Clause 3 pack (accept or decline). Response needed by November 18 for the latter.
