And Stanley and Livingstone was regrettably pulled in order to show The Wizard of Oz.
Trivia connection: I saw a nitrate print of S&L in sepia tone at MoMA; WoO also begins and ends in sepia tone.
Sepia tone was big in those days. Too bad that many of those films are now presented in simple B&W.

That link is the same one that doesn't mention the sound format for the new UHD disc. Some folks are seeing the mono as listed as a "bonus" feature for the included Blu-ray and assuming the UHD disc does NOT contain the mono track. Also unmentioned is if the UHD disc will feature the DTS MA 5.1 of the last Blu-ray or a new possibly Atmos track. Really lame that they didn't mention it.

WB didn't even mention the film's 80th anniversary anywhere in that press release. I guess this means the cover will included a sticker on it that says 80, just like they did with the 75th.

That cover... oof. Those four must have still been under the influence of the poppy field not to notice they were about to be killed by that twister.

A great historic document. Well done on tracking it down. So now we know that at least critics were allowed into those early screenings.
Critics were usually always allowed to see films early until 1960 when Hitchcock wouldn't allow it for Psycho and afterwards a lot of other directors and studios followed suit.

It's a shame the Jitterbug sequence is lost. I still recall when my high school staged a production of Oz and they included the Jitterbug number. That was a huge hit with the audience.
