On the discs
The 2009 Wizard of Oz Two-Disc Special Edition DVD has the sharp 2005 restoration using Warner's Ultra Resolution process and an accompanying featurette on how it's done. The technicians also discuss how the sound was remixed, though that would have been more effective had it included surround-sound demonstrations (the featurette is in 2.0). Other features include a commentary track by critic John Fricke supplemented by vintage cast interviews (he offers a lot of trivia, and debunks the myth that Shirley Temple was ever close to getting the Dorothy role); profiles of nine cast members and clips of other movies they appeared in (including Toto); a lightly animated 10-minute storybook narrated by Angela Lansbury; and the original mono track and a music-and-effects track. New for 2009 is a sing-along track that you can turn on as you watch the movie or you can select from 10 numbers to sing along with karaoke-style subtitles. The second disc has the Lansbury-hosted documentary The Making of a Movie Classic; outtakes and deleted scenes, including Judy Garland's "Over the Rainbow" reprise and the home-movie recording of "The Jitterbug"; sketches and stills and composer Harold Arlen's home movies; audio underscores and radio programs; 1979 interviews with Margaret Hamilton, Ray Bolger, and Jack Haley; 2001 and 2005 behind-the-scenes featurettes; a 1950 Lux Radio Theater broadcast; and other items too numerous to mention. --David Horiuchi
I bought this movie for my 5 year old Grandson to watch and he loves it!
I have seen many of the outtakes, deleted scenes, and the documentary with Angela Lansbury about the making of The Wizard Of Oz, which are all included in the DVD.
I thought "We can watch it when ever we like and it will be just like when I was a kid".
My favorite movie of all time! So simple yet complex with layers and mystery! Really love all the extras on this DVD edition! Learned much I never knew! Read morePublished 1 hour ago by Sheila Murrey

While the Blu-ray is a stunning effort in its own right, the 3D Blu-ray is so good it is almost impossible to describe. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Anthony Wayne
