    As feared/expected, there's no mono track on the 4K disc. :angry:

    Big visual upgrade, though. More stable picture overall, better balance.

    Included Blu-ray duplicates the 2013 release...

    And none of the deleted scenes are included on either disc is that correct? Thanks for the information

    Only extras on the 4K disc are the commentary and the circa 1990 documentary hosted by Angela Lansbury.

    As mentioned, the Blu-ray literally replicates the 2013 release - same copyright on the disc! - so if it's not on that one, it's not here! :)

    So the encode error from the old Blu-ray when the Munchkins Wave bye to Glenda is still there on the bd. They fixed it for the 3D version. And I suppose on the 4K, Judy's line is still altered. Sigh.

    Remind me what the lines is and where to find it and I'll check.

    I'd be shocked to find any differences - seems unlikely WB did a new DTS-HD MA 5.1 track for this - but I'll look!

    Is there somewhere where the original version can be heard to compare to the altered version?

    I have the 1997 MGM DVD and it is on there, and every release before that. I know someone on originaltrilogy was trying to find it. I don't think it is anywhere online. I am willing to concede it may have been an original mistake, if I can be convinced. It is likely. But we heard it for sixty years.

    Ok. Thanks. I think video restoration has come so far. Audio preservation should start taking center stage.

    I'm more disappointed the 4K disc lacks the mono mix - though the quality of the mono version on the BD was awfully iffy.

    They should've used the 4K as an opportunity to deliver a restored mono track!

    Personally, I would be even more excited if the sound were improved. I don't know how much more picture information is available, but current audio technology has progressed enough that they could improve the sound greatly, but no one seems interested in the sound portion of the film. No information available has made any mention of the sound.

    This would be because it is the same audio track as the existing blu-ray. No reason to mention something that didn't change.
