I'd have preferred the 1993 edition.
Quite agree. Agnieszska Holland's 1993 version is superior and has never been released on blu-ray by Warner. This should be an easy one for Warner Archive. Another key children's film from the 1990s, which has never had a blu-ray release is Alfonso Curaróns A Little Princess from 1995 - also from Warners. I have both of these fantastic films on laserdisc and would buy them in an instant, if Warner bothered to release them.

I have both on iTunes in HD and they look terrific. Paid $4.99 each.

I love both the 1949 and 1993 versions so no reason to choose ... watch both. Having said that, I do prefer the old 1949 version as Margaret O'Brien is so believable as the unloved little girl.
I would definitely stay away from the new version which has been reported as having changed the story into a fantasy movie .. in the original version, changes were wrought from the personalities themselves and the power of genuine nature, not from supernatural forces.
