Format: DVD
In 1971, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, a film many call a Mary Poppins rip-off, premiered at Radio City Music Hall, but in a version in which nearly half an hour of footage, including full songs, was removed. For its 25th Anniversary in 1996, Disney re-inserted all of the deleted footage except for one musical number in which the picture was lost. The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences screened this in 1996, but it didn't get a theatrical release, and for years, the only way Americans could get it was either by the 1997 laserdisc release, an import of a European video, or by catching it on occasion on the Disney Channel.

Finally, in 2001, for the film's 30th Anniversary, Disney released a DVD with this extended version of the film. Restored and remastered, the film now has a clearer plot, extended musical numbers, and songs previously deleted. The brilliant "Portobello Road" number is now restored to its original running time, as well as Miss Price's response verses, titled "Don't Let Me Down" during Mr. Browne's song "Eglantine," and the previously entirely deleted songs "With A Flair" and "Nobody's Problems" are restored to the film.

The DVD is a mixed bag. The transfer is quite nice, but Lowry Digital, who did the recent Mary Poppins, Bambi, and Cinderella DVD restorations, could punch it up a little, as on occasion, I saw a bit of grain, and the occasional film artifact, especially during the closing credits and Walt Disney Pictures logo. However, this film has still never looked better on home video, so it's fine with me.

The extras could have been better. An actual making-of on the film would have been nice, including footage used in the Music Magic featurette.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSICKS was made in the early 70's and is one of those Disney films that speaks to the little kid in us all. Directed by veteran Disney director Robert Stevenson (Mary Pippins, The Love Bug, The Darn Cat ) and starring the incomparable Angela Landsbury (Murder She Wrote, Mame - on Broadway, The Last Unicorn 2004) as Miss Elglentine Price the apprentice witch of the Professor Emiliace Brown School Of Witchcraft - played none other by veteran Disney character performer/actor David Tomlinson (Tom Jones, The Love Bug, Made In Heaven). There is even a great performance in a small role as a priest by Roddy McDowell (Planet Of The Apes, Cleopatra, Fright Night)
The story is set in the early days of the German attack on the European border. Towns were broken down, families were separated and displaced and many people had to go to war and leave their children behind. One set of these children were orphaned with Miss Price. Accidentally discovering her secret they convince her to go on her quest to find the one last spell that will save England from attack.
There is magic, music and lot of special effects that make this movie colorful and enticing to watch. Back in the days when most special effects were real and done "in cameras" - meaning on the set - this film has a lot to be proud of.
The songs are fantastic and this FULLY RESTORED DVD is the best it has to offer. Included the full versions of songs like Portabello Road and reinserted songs like No One To Come Home To has made this version a treasure to own. Other fantastic numbers like Substitutiary Locomotion and Under The Briny Sea are fantastic and hitting home for kids is the Academy Award Nominated song Your At The Age Of Not Believing.

UPDATE
To resolve confusion being caused by other reviewers: The feature on the Blu-ray disc runs one hour and fifty-seven minutes.
(Another reviewer appears to have incorrectly interpreted 1:57 as 157 minutes. It is actually 117 minutes.)
I assure everyone this is the shorter, original theatrical version, without the additional scenes that were included on previous DVD editions.

ALSO - The special features on the Blu-ray disc include a featurette entitled "Music Magic: The Sherman Brothers". This featurette is about all the scenes that were cut. The entire purpose of this featurette is to promote the restoration of these scenes back into the film and discuss the challenges encountered in the restoration process. Angela Lansbury and others speak at length about how lovely it is to be able to see the film again as originally intended. The people who worked on this project would have had to be idiots not to notice the disparity between the version of the movie promoted in the bonus materials (if anybody had actually watched them) and the actual version of the movie on the disc. Having worked for Disney Home Entertainment myself, this is not entirely surprising.

In my review earlier today, I wrote:
I am stunned at the botched job Disney has done with the Blu-ray release of this magical film. When it was released on DVD a few years ago, it included the restoration of addition musical sequences that had been cut for the original theatrical release. The running time was 139 minutes. Even the earlier laserdisc edition contained the 139 minute version of the film. I was looking very forward to upgrading to Blu-ray, expecting the film would look spectacular on Blu-ray.

Worth it for 30th Anniversary Edition owners?
Based on the other posty on this message board, this new copy is the original theatrical print at 117 minutes. That alone makes me want to hang on to my 30th Anniversary copy as it is the 139 minute copy made actually for the film's 25th anniversary but never saw a video release til the big 30.

Scene restored in the new edition??
Honestly, I hope they are cutting out much of the "restored" bits they added in for the 25th anniversary segment. I think they slow the film down considerably. I always felt that Roddy McDowell's character was not important and I could care less if we have the subplot about him wooing... Read More
