Looks like my reaction to these new transfers is quite different from the general run of comments on Amazon since this set came out a few days ago. Apart from the incredible restoration of the "Todd-A-O Oklahoma!" which is of demonstration quality and should not be undervalued, the other new transfers, especially "The King and I" "Carousel" and "State Fair" are, in my opinion, just dead wrong in terms of color, brightness and contrast. Yes, resolution is better, especially in the case of "State Fair," but much of this movie is too dark. Instead of a cheery musical, we are given a sombre melodrama. Take a look at Margy's first entrance at her window and as she turns to go into her room. So much of the image disappears in shadow, and her lovely dress looks more like a dish towel.

"The King and I" has some terrific flashes of proper color, but much of it is too dark (again) with an odd blue tinge that flattens the contrast. When it isn't blue, it is at times a burnished yellow-copper that means well but, because of the brightness level, the king especially sometimes looks like he just stepped out of a mudbath. And look what happens to Irene Sharaf's fabulous costumes when you make the darker aspects darker still. Note how the subtle uniqueness of each of the costumes of the king's wives is wasted into shadow when they gather about Anna to check out her dress. Elsewhere, we see that all the jewelry glistens but we can't quite make out how any of it set into the costume or headgear. The transfer isn't always wrong in this respect. "The March of the Siamese Children" is close to perfect - lots of light with good color balance - which makes me wonder why so many other scenes are dialed down the way they are.

We waited a long time for the Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection to arrive on Blu Ray. It's been several years since it was originally announced for release, then all of a sudden it was cancelled. Now, it's finally out. The films themselves are from some of the best Musicals ever written. I personally believe that the "Sound of Music" is the best Film ever made, due to it's music, storyline, scenery, and location photography. The film itself is far superior to it's stage production. As far as the musicals themselves, I feel "Carousel" is the best of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Scores. The film was good, but if you see a professional Stage Version, you will come to appreciate it even more. (I was fortunate enough to see Audra McDonald in the 1994 Revival at Lincoln Center.) "State Fair", "King and I", "South Pacific" and "Oklahoma" are also wonderful.

Now, the Blu Rays themselves. Major disappointment. The worst treatment is "The King and I". The color temperature of the film is way off. The entire film has a heavy blue cast over it. At times the actors skin is actually blue. The continuity of color throughout camera angles also changes within scenes. There was no effort to restore this movie to give it the Blu Ray presentation it deserves. A good example is when Lady Thiang is singing "Something Wonderful". She goes from Bluish to even Bluer within the song. She could have easily been a character from "Avatar". It's a shame. These were important films during their time and were shot in CinemaScope 55. They were produced as close to perfection as technology at that time allowed. They are also important films to many people today and they should be preserved on Blu Ray the best possible way.

If you love the Musicals of Rodgers and Hammerstein then you should know that the six films represented in this set look and sound better than I have ever seen them on home video. So why should you consider holding off on buying the set? Frankly, it's the price. I was lucky enough to get my order in when it was being sold for under $80. For that price, I feel as if I've gotten my money's worth. Had I paid $179 I would have been sorely disappointed.

It all comes down to the supplements. Studios these days are reticent to spend any money on supplemental features, especially on catalog films. All of the supplements on this set could already be found on previous DVD releases or, in the case of The Sound of Music and South Pacific, on the Blu-ray releases. Don't misunderstand me: these are quality supplements geared toward film lovers. They are also plentiful, with one exception I'll get to farther along in the review. The are sadly all in Standard Definition, however. That wouldn't bother me so much except that some of them, like the Todd-AO shorts or the feature film Liliom (the basis for Carousel), could really benefit from an HD transfer.

Which brings me to the two things that are deal-breakers, as far as I'm concerned. First, the South Pacific discs are exactly the same as the previously-released version. That means that the Roadshow version of the film is still in SD. Very disappointing. Secondly, The Sound of Music is only the first disc from the previously-released Blu-ray set. That means that the most popular film in the set is missing nearly all of the supplements from that set. It's bare-bones except for commentary tracks. For what they are charging, Fox should have included the second disc. There is absolutely no excuse for not doing so.

New transfers?
I don't know the specifics. Check the discussion thread under this title on They have a list of most of the details and bonus material includes.
My main concern is what is not included with "The Sound of Music". I may keep my two disc set. I hope this helps.

The Todd-AO 30-frame per second road show feature "Oklahoma!" was fully restored by 20th Century Fox. Andrew Oran, of FotoKem, said: "We did preservation on "Oklahoma!" from the camera neg but are not making a new print. However, a 4K DCP was made."
