The happiest sound in its best version yet!,
This review is from: The Sound of Music (Five Star Collection) (DVD)
Reviled by some, beloved by many, consistently referred to as the most popular movie musical ever made, THE SOUND OF MUSIC more than fulfills the promise of its beautiful visuals and expert song numbers on home video via DVD. This edition tops the 1995 laserdisc by allowing the sparkling, exemplary design of its 70mm. Todd-AO frame to be exhibited with increased sharpness and resolution. The 4.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack is powerful and clean, but since this film was originally mixed for six-track magnetic stereo, it's curious why the effort wasn't made by Fox to split the surrounds! Nonethless, the film sounds terrific. The extra features make this package a bargain at the price. Full length commentary by director Bob Wise, with the musical numbers presented sans vocals, is a great touch. And the two documentaries are beautifully presented; full of facts and bits of arcane information that any fan will truly enjoy. A great movie, and a great DVD rendition. More like this, PLEASE!

My comment is that I never recieved my DVD for "Sound of Music". It was to be delivered by 8-15. It is now 8-25. M&M Sales Group never sent this. Order # 104-3665521-4817842 was placed on 7-29. I can't believe that Amazon has never responded to my E-Mails asking this be resolved. You kept my money with no problem. What about the customer?
