This is a must for me, will probably settle for the 3-disc set, although the collector's set looks tempting...

Talk about head-on: Fox's TSoM is going up day-and-date against Sony's Bridge on the River Kwai for the title of first pre-1970, non-WB Best Picture on U.S. BD. That makes Nov. 2 a budget-busting day for classic BD lovers. (Oh, and did I mention Toy Story 3 is *ALSO* dropping that day?)

(Julie Andrews + 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio sound) make this the slogan of the movie and it will sell itself.

Excellent! Day one purchase. My collection is quite a bit heavy on the modern explosion-ridden action flick. I need a little something to balance out Transformers and Avatar.

Let's hope that it's a great transfer.

What I am most looking foward to is the newly remastered version. In the 2 disc that came out a couple of years ago you can see this rip in the film right at the beginning of the movie. If any "classic" needed help and deserved to fully restore it was this one. Sound should be great too. This one is gonna be a favorite to play for all the fam and friends during the Holidays!

Incredible. My all-time fave film, finally!!!!! And by the way Bookcase, it isn't junk that's being offered. A 45th anniversary CD from the music stems, a reproduction of the souvenir book, and a 100-page hardback book do not add up to junk. Many of the fans of this movie, and there are many many many of them, will be quite thrilled to own these items. But I agree with your "other" point that it should be offered both as the gift set and regular edition.

The Technicolor they used when they shot this is about as accurate color scheme wise as it really looks in the Salzburg area of the Alps. I was amazed to see how vividly they were able to capture that with the tech they used back in the day. It really is that green! I can't wait to see what they do with the restoration but I hope they don't get rid of the rich colors that are in the original film because that would be a shame. The Alps are beautiful and this film captures the landscape so perfectly. I am not a big fan of musicals but Julie Andrews has a great voice and this movie is a classic, I will be getting it for the wife but I like it too. Great movie, must buy!

You can add me to the waiting list, although I don't want the "All Singing" (excuse pun) set, I'll take the one with the least amount of discs, I enjoy the film, but not that much.

Why the DVD-combo? I hate those, why would I watch it on DVD, when I have it on Blu.
