Product Description

Disc 1: THE MUSIC MAN Disc 2: MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS Disc 3: SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS

Amazon.com

This three-disc set, part of Warner's Essential Classics series, collects three truly classic films--The Music Man, Meet Me in St. Louis, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers--in one inexpensive package. The drawback is you don't get the second disc of either Meet Me in St. Louis or Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, so if you're a featurette junky or if you simply have to see the reshot version of Seven Brides, you'll want to stick with the individual releases. But this set does include the commentary tracks and any other material that was on the first disc of those two-disc sets (The Music Man still has everything that was on the one-disc release), and best of all, they have the great remastered pictures of the previous releases. So if you just want the movies looking better than ever with some bonus features thrown in for good measure, the price per movie makes this set an attractive bargain. --David Horiuchi

These three movie musicals are classic representations of a true American art form - the musical. All three feature timeless performances of great american actors and actresses. Any complete movie collection should have these three and what better way to buy than as one package. Granted there are very few extras but how often are those watched, for me rarely.

3 wonderful MGM musicals at a great price together. Not the greatest MGM musicals but they're up there with the best. For sheer entertainment on a cold, indoors-type of day, these 3 musicals will warm your spirit with a stroll down yester-year. Memorable tunes, big screen name actors, wonderful color and dance numbers lend themselves to a superb product that's been remastered digitally to fit the big HD screens. If you're looking to replace old VHS tapes or just need 3 movies to fill a void, this disc won't disappoint you.

While this set doesn't include all the extra material dvd's at this price it's still well worth it for these great musicals. They are indeed classics as the title states. My favorites would be "Meet Me in St. Loius" and "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Not very found of "The Music Man" but the package is still cheaper than what I would pay individually. The movies speak for themselves.

Great musical classic that my whole family loves. There are others that I have not been able to get or find, such as "Many Rivers to Cross", Tammy and the Bachelor", Mother was a Freshman" and a few more. Sure would like to find these on DVD.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collectors edition of some of my favorite musicals. The Picture color and clarity were unsurpassed. They will bring hours of enjoyment as I watch them in the future.

This is a real TREASURE! I received it in a short time - and have already played it several times to my delight! It was wonderful to find THREE of my most favorite musicals in the same package. Thanks!

Sorry to say that the copy of Essential Classics-American Musicals I received in a reasonable time was defective. "Meet me In St Louis" froze about 1/3 of the way through. I tried playing it on other DVD players with no luck! So disappointed as I had finally purchased this favorite musical of mine after talking about it for years and then when I finally had the family gathered together to watch it, we spent 1/2 hour trying to remedy the problem, and frustrated, gave up! Now I'm just getting my $$ back. Would rather they had sent me a new working copy! I will order it from another seller in hopes that I'll see it by Christmas!!

Three great movies in one. It may not have the special features that you would get if you bought the movies in a single pack, but seeing as how they are older movies this feature is not missed. A good buy if ever there was one.
