    With Spielberg's upcoming theatrical revision I would highly guess that West Side Story is in the works for 4k.

    It's just the steelbook. They have a placeholder for the regular 4K release, but no cover art yet.

    ...and anything that appears on Amazon is worthless. You can't get Warner product from them on time anymore.

    Amen, brother.

    I figure to take ownership of The Thin Man from Amazon sometime around 2034 (in time for its 100th anniversary).

    Hahaha! Yeah, I had to cancel my Amazon order of TTM and buy it from BestBuy.

    However, BestBuy doesn't get all the WAC titles. They didn't have Prisoner of Second Avenue or Wagon Master. Had to go to Deep Discount for those. Deep Discount is okay, but their standard shipping takes a good week to get to you.

    I'm sure they won't. But I just can't go back to 2D for this on any format. The 3D edition was like being 5 yrs old and seeing it for the very first time. Better than the 1080p in both detail & color. Doubt I'll ever opt for viewing a flat version again.

    The cover art for this upcoming edition is awful, it looks like WB were trying to to go for a comic book look, something like that jumbo comic book both Marvel and DC collaborated together on in the 1970's.

    Here's the Best Buy Steelbook, YAWN! Nothing new to see.

    Will GONE WITH THE WIND also get an 80th Anniversary 4K release?

    Clam Gable? :

    The 1939 M‐G.M film with Clam Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard and Olivia de Havilland, will probably be shown in the fall for the first of the 20 appearances permitted wider the contract

    Question is, if you order it from Amazon will you get it?

    You should get it by Christmas, though it's being released a couple of days before Halloween.:)

    I don't know what the Wicked Witch is doing flying over Kansas but I don't think it is so bad. It references the Black and White and Technicolor aspects of the film and the tornado. It actually has a lot of the film in one picture. Dorothy and her friends are from a photograph, not a drawing. Only major character missing is the Wizard.

    There is a brief scene in which the Wicked Witch is flying in the tornado in black and white.

    I have now spent more to own copies of The Wizard of Oz than MGM spent to make it. If my HD iTunes file automatically upgrades to 4k that will do me just fine.

    Good Lord, that cover art is hideous. I think the steelbook cover looks a thousand percent better.

    The Steelbook is so boring though, it's so predictable of WB.

    What do you want as the cover art for "The Wizard of Oz"?
