  • Behind the Curtain, A 52-page, coffee-table book
  • Reproduction of the original 1939 campaign book

The following is some additional information about the new special features developed specifically for this release as well as details regarding some of the collectibles:
  • The Dreamer of Oz – which makes its long-awaited home video debut. Also remastered the occasion, this full-length motion picture was an NBC-TV special event in 1990 and thrilled critics and audiences as it told the back story of author L. Frank Baum, "the Royal Historian of Oz.” John Ritter shines in the title role -- the man who defied all odds to create the famous characters and stories. Annette O'Toole beautifully co-stars as his supportive wife, with Rue McClanahan as his challenging witch of a mother-in-law.
  • Victor Fleming, Master Craftsman -- a new feature-length documentary produced specifically for this release about the Hollywood director who, in the same year, miraculously brought both Oz and Gone With the Wind to the screen.
  • Hollywood Celebrates It's Biggest Little Stars-- a new featurette stars seven of the original "Munchkins of Oz" and tells the saga of the long journey, culminating in them receiving their own 2007 Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
  • The Magic Cloak of Oz -- the first release of the complete 1914 silent film, including lost footage never before included in a home video presentation of this feature (produced by Baum himself).
  • The Patchwork Girl of Oz -- another 1914 Baum-produced, feature-length silent film, new to Warner Home Video.
  • The Wizard of Oz Sing-Along Track -- here making its home entertainment debut.
  • Reproductions of Archival Material -- Extraordinary renderings of the original 1939 Oz campaign, exploitation, and press books. These materials constitute a Hollywood "holy grail" for Oz, Garland, and motion picture fans alike and, for decades, have been among the most sought-after and impossible- to-find collectibles.
  • Behind The Curtain -- a 52-page miniature coffee-table book, assembled by pre-eminent Oz historian John Fricke. Encompassing much previously unpublished material, the deluxe volume includes behind-the-scenes Oz photographs, studio memos, and script pages for abandoned scenes and musical numbers.
  • Exclusive Wizard of Oz Watch -- A collectible and numbered 70th Anniversary watch, incorporating art from the film and enhanced with genuine crystals. Available nowhere else, this beautiful timepiece was created specially for this DVD edition.

My wife is going to be thrilled; this was on her wishlist Sounds awesome! But I do agree with the other poster that there should be a regular $20.00 Blu-ray single disc available for those who don't want all the extra stuff. I'm still waiting for Casablanca to be released under $25.00 as I really like the film but am not a fanatic to pay over $50.00... Warner take note!!

WB, give the consumer the choice of the special gift box or just the discs. Disney understands this
concept, just look at the snow white and its many different options. As much as I want this, I will be

I've been waiting for this Bluray release for a long time.I'm hoping Warner's releases the regular 2 disc(i DON'T need a digital copy of the movie people, so please stop including them and charging us for them when 95% of us don't want them or have a use for them, an additional dvd copy would be more useful if something like this absolutely must be included)set and sets a retail price accordingly.While the set with all the little extras is nice for the WoO collector, it simply doesn't apply to most of us who would like a Bluray edition of the classic.

Amazon has this box set for $59.00. Hopefully after they sit a while they will lower the price and I will snatch it up then. You guys know how it works, I picked up Band Of Brothers at Amazon for $38.00. A little patience pays off in the end.

I don't want the collectibles but I do want all the content. I can't believe they piled even more content on top of what was already in the 3-disc DVD. The Dreamer of Oz starring John Ritter? That's gonna be a trip to watch. I also am looking forward to the new doc on director Victor Fleming. I will pay about $45-50 tops for it though.

For all those complaining, this has been announced as a 70th anniversary ultimate collector's edition for about a year now and haven't mentioned a bare bones release. You've had some time to get used to it. They will release standalone discs at some point in time but you are going to have to be patient for those. They're milking the collector's for all they're worth at the moment!

The Dreamer of Oz?! This is the first release of that movie since it aired on TV.

And it's great that we'll see ALL of the silent oz films on one disc -- the last release was missing one of the Oz movies.

Doubt there will be much HD content on the second disc with 6 feature-length movies on disc 2.

Sick and tired of the studios giving us a bunch of standard def extras ported over from the DVD we already own. How long is this going to go on? Who wants to see MUSH after watching a spectacular feature presentation? For the price of this box o' junk, all extras should be in hi def.

GJN,

The reason why these sets are deluxe/expensive versions is because classic catalog titles still aren't selling that well. The majority of BD owners continues to only care about brand new films with special effects and explosions. So WB is going to make those who do like classic films to pay a little extra since they know most current owners have no interest.

Re above post (Mr. Cinema). This strategy will fail miserably I think. Wonder how many Casablanca box sets were actually bought. Wonder how many of these will be sold. Granted I just forked over for the Woodstock box, but looks like even that may end up being put out in a plain package at some point. And... once they do put out the plain package, what will be added and/or left out? Usually you see all these special packages sitting around in stores for years and years collecting dust. Just some thoughts.

Unfortunately, the only way I will be viewing this disc is via rental. I do not desire to be milked by a box full of dust collectors like a cheap wrist watch and cardboard reproductions when all I want is the film in high definition. This film is "must-have" for many of us on Blu-ray but the box set is a "must-not" for me. I unfortunately will not be adding this title to my collection in its current form. It will join "Casablanca" and "Gone With the Wind" on my wish list for a standard releaseβ€”until then, no thanks, Warner! Thankfully, I was able to get all of the "Dirty Harry" films in keepcases from the UK. I will keep my fingers crossed that these sets will be stripped down, region free versions for the overseas market.

I myself find the value in buying this special package version of The Wizard of Oz. However, I agree that most folks would probably prefer a less expensive, disc-only version, and Warner should provide that. I also wonder if coming out with BDs at such a high price point also slows the conversion from DVD to BD?

I think WB's should give the option of just selling the Blu Rays in a set also.

To be honest I don't understand why for this and Gone with the Wind they are using such odd shapped cases? The image for the Wizard of Oz set isn't that impressive, nothing like the last Limited Coll. Ed DVD Set now that looked great.. this is kinda BLAH.

The Casablanca set wasa lot better... It was big but the height and width was good. Wizard and Wind are kinda lacking in imagination in packaging.

The CEO at Warner is absolutely mad releasing this movie at such a high price point during the worst economic climate in decades.

The mass consumer market does want a decent release of classic films with special features, but Warner live in cloud cuckoo land if they think putting it in a special box with a bunch of collectibles warrants such a high price.

Most consumers dont want the collectibles just a Complete blu ray experience with all the special features in a normal blu case..

Well I guess this is the same CEO who was releasing the Dolby Digital only audio codec and did not give a crap about what the consumer wants. These Company Executives have no idea, it wouldnt take a genius to run Warner lol.

Can accept paying a bit more for a coffee table book. But the limited edition stuff is silly, They number it and release (almost) the same amount as every other movie. Same as Disney's limited releases. I've never had problems finding a Disney title I want. I hope they put out the bare bones single disc edition in Taiwan, I'll buy that one.

The reason why there is no widescreen version on this blu-ray release is because the film was not shot in widescreen (aspect ratio 1.78) but in full-screen (1.33). Theaters 70 years ago did not have widescreen projections until the 1950's. Warner Brothers will not affect the screen image as was first presented and presents this blu-ray release the way it was first released in theatres unless the director of the movie made changes otherwise (didn't seem to happen).

Very nice set (if price weren't the issue.) Pre-ordered it. Getting it on Day 1.
