Product Description

Disc 1: THE WIZARD OF OZ Disc 2: THE GOONIES Disc 3: WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

Amazon.com

This three-disc set, part of Warner's Essential Classics series, collects three films--The Wizard of Oz, The Goonies, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory--in one inexpensive package. (Apparently, 1985's The Goonies and 1971's Willy Wonka are considered modern classics.) The drawback is you don't get the bonus discs of The Wizard of Oz (either one bonus disc or two, depending on which version you're interested in)--so if you really want the documentaries or the silent films, you'll want to stick with the individual releases. But this set does include the commentary tracks, cast profiles, and any other material that was on the movie discs of the Oz sets, or anything that was on the previous Goonies or Wonka releases. Best of all, The Wizard of Oz has the great remastered picture of the two 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

If you can still get your hands on this set, do so!

I originally bought this set to send to some adorable little children in Jamaica who may never have had the opportunity to see (or even know) that these movies exist. However, when I received the set, it wasn't one of those cheap 2 or 3- movies on a single disc nonsense. There are 3 separate discs. Full version with some accompanying documentaries. I couldn't let this go, so I told those brats that Santa got word that they were naughty, "So you get nothing! Nothing, I tell you!" In the end, I decided to give them copies!

The Wizard of Oz-- Standard screen, commentary by a film historian, interviews with cast and crew, several short documentaries on the restoration of the film, music an effects track, original mono track.

The Goonies-- Widescreen, The Making of The Goonies documentary, Additional scenes, Cyndi Lauper's video "The Goonies R Good Enough!," cast and crew commentaries.

Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory-- Widescreen, commentary by the children featured in the film, sing-a-longs (yay!), brief bio of cast.

This is a steal. Warner Bros' just released another deluxe version of the Wizard of Oz, and until they released the single disc version the price to buy the Wizard alone is a lot of $$$$$$$$.

5 gargantuan Stars.

I wanted to purchase Wizard of Oz and found this set. It was such a great deal that I couldn't resist getting the other 2 movies. Unfortunately, the only one I really wanted didn't work. The seller sent another copy, which still did not work but issued a refund. The other 2 movies worked great.

I really hate to give this set a 1 star, but the description was wrong! I bought this ONLY because it said it was in German (dubbed and with subtitles)! I already own all 3 of these movies in English, and they are really great productions. Gene Wilder is my all-time favorite actor, and I feel ashamed of myself giving ANYTHING he is in a 1star rating. I want to be clear that the 1 star is for the error in description, not for the movies!

I absolutely loved this deal! The movies came sealed, brand new, and in perfect condition. It looks just like the image on the website. There are 3 slim dvd cases for each movie. All great movies and classics! Would definitely recommend buying! You can't find a price like this for all 3 classic movies in one!

Things happen ... I understand. Had a special night for my kids planned by watching the original Wizard of Oz prior to the next night's going to see WICKED broadway show at Tampa's Performing Arts Center the next night. Unfortunately the disc had a recurring skip in the middle of it and it wouldn't function past that spot. The night would not be the same. They did refund me for the purchase without hesitation so that was good.

Works in older Dvd players...I have a Samsung BluRay player (bd-fm57c) and the sound wont play for any of the discs. Tried all the settings and updates - nada. Works fine in the other player - very strange

I got the package because the description said the three movies were in spanish. I was surprised to find out that the Wizard of Oz has subtitles in spanish but is not translated to the language. I am dissapointed because my little boy (who does not understand English yet)wishes to watch the movie in Spanish.... Description of the movies should be corrected.

Three classic movies for a great price. This set costs about the same as each movie does individually.
