...precise dialogue and song lyrics rooted to the center channel...
Is that correct? When I produced the soundtrack album, I had access to the multi-track film mix and I remember working very hard to position the vocals in "Dee-Are-A-Gee-O-En (Dragon)" to the center for the album. The film mix panned the vocals to match the on-screen action, but I was able to merge just the vocals with the scoring masters for the album mix.

I didn't notice a pan there, but I'll check it out again tomorrow. There was so much to absorb throughout the movie that I'm sure I missed a ton of interesting and worthwhile things.

I watched the Smilebox version last night and it shattered my expectations. From an a/v presentation standpoint, I was anticipating something akin to Warner's brilliant How The West Was Won restoration. In my opinion, this release takes everything that was exceptional about that one and turns it up to eleven. This is a "must add" for every film library.

That horrible looking print shown on TCM kept me from watching it for the first time until a few hours ago when I watched the first hour of the Blu-ray and had a great time and a great job done on the restoration. Can’t wait to see the rest of it tomorrow nigh.

Actually, Oscar Hammerstein 2nd wrote "A hundred million miracles are happening every day." Flower Drum Song. The restoration IS quite remarkable. So good to have all the major Cinerama released now available on video.
He also wrote, "Impossible things are happening every day" in Cinderella which is what I quoted.
