    Ah - the years just fly by, don't they? One of the first laserdiscs I bought was Criterion's 50th anniversary Wizard Of Oz. It doesn't feel that long ago!

    That's because it wasn't.;)
    Very exciting news, especially since its been my understanding that not all films are capable candidates for the 4K/UHD format.
    With that in mind - along with 1957 and Kwai being the oldest 4K offering - I never thought we'd get anywhere near 1939.
    But believe me big time, I'm all in.:thumbs-up-smiley:

    I never saw that one, I only know of MGM's. I wish I owned the 50th, but I was only 1 in 1989 and by the time I had my first copy on VHS, the 50th was either out of print or my parent's weren't going to pay the price for it.

    This film has had more anniversaries than a family of polygamists.

    It will be very interesting to see what additional detail (if any) can be gleaned from a 1939 Technicolor film in UHD 4K. At least the colors in HDR should be very nice.

    I'll be shocked if that doesn't come out in this year.

    One film that needs to have a 80th anniversary release is Gunga Din. The dvd I have is from 2004 and from a old print of the film.

    I wrote when I bought, watched and LOVED the 3D edition of The Wizard of Oz that it would be the last time I would be buying it, and I meant it! I just can't bring myself to buy it yet another time, even if the HDR makes it fly off the screen! I cannot tell you how many editions of this masterpiece I've purchased, but no more!

    I could very easily post every edition of this film I have on VHS, DVD and Blu, heck I could post my entire Oz collection, but I won't (unless maybe you asked me).

    Yeah, I know. When I bought The Ultimate Oz laserdisc set, I figured THAT would be the last one I'd ever buy, but Warners keeps finding new ways to separate me from my money.

    I'm in the same boat - I'm really satisfied with how cool that 3D version is and I think I'm all set with that as my go-to.
