So of the two versions of the film here, which is better to watch? One would expect it to be the Todd-AO version, which was shot in 70 mm instead of 35 mm, and at 30 frames per second rather than 24 for a smoother picture. Unfortunately, that's not the case. The Todd-AO version looks fuzzy and washed out and is clearly inferior to the DVD's CinemaScope transfer. Other bonus features include a commentary track by Oscar Hammerstein biographer Hugh Fordin and Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization president Ted Chapin and sing-along subtitles on disc 1. On disc 2 are a commentary track by Shirley Jones and historian Nick Redman (she recounts how she auditioned for the film on her way to veterinary school, and how she worried about being filmed in Todd-AO because it was "as though you could see every mark on your skin"), and black-and-white television broadcast performances of Gordon MacRae singing "Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'" and Florence Henderson and MacRae singing "People Will Say We're in Love." --David Horiuchi

I hate most DVDs for that reason, and many more. DVDs are supposed to be superior to VHS, but so many of the DVDs are shorter, and the cut scenes really do ruin the movie. I hate the letterbox as well. It cuts off the actors' feet and sometimes the tops of their heads, which ruins the dance... Read More
