Musicals Collection (BD)
Silent movies are giving way to talking pictures – and a hoofer-turnedmatinee idol (Gene Kelly) is caught in that bumpy transition, as are his buddy (Donald O’Connor), prospective ladylove (Debbie Reynolds) and shrewish costar (Jean Hagen). The musical masterwork Singin’ in the Rain is celebrated with special features that salute not just this all-time favorite but also the musical legacy of its producer, songwriter Arthur Freed.]]>

My TV and Blu-ray player are not 3D, and I had a little difficulty at first accessing the 2D version of “Kiss Me Kate.” But I posted my question here on amazon and got the information I needed. I had been watching something else, and even though I changed the Input from DVD player to Satellite and back again, the only message that came up was that it "could not read this disc." After I had completely turned off everything, though, I gave it another try and the message came up that I did not have 3D capabilities and to push the OK button for the 2D version. I don't know why I didn't get that message before, but it's working now. So if anyone else is having trouble accessing the 2D version, I suggest turning off everything and trying again.
I haven't watched “The Band Wagon” or “Singin' in the Rain” all the way through yet; but I played a little just to see what they looked like, and they both look great. The colors on “Calamity Jane” and “Kiss Me Kate” were terrific. If you love these old musicals the way I do, I recommend this collection very highly--and you can't beat the price per disc at only $7 or so.
First off - both the 2D and the 3D versions of "Kiss Me Kate" are included. I didn't even realize that was the case when I ordered this set.
Second - the packaging is really well done. There's a heavy paper case with each BluRay housed in a separate sleeve, much like the Universal Monsters or the Complete Star Wars Collections, except that the discs are easier to remove from this packaging. That case is housed in a sturdy slip case, so the discs are going to be well protected over the years. There are also 4 lobby cards included - one from each film. These are oversized and do not fit inside the BluRay packaging, which I consider a bit of a bummer as I think it would have been nice if the cards were housed inside with the discs. Hey - at least they included the lobby cards!
BTW - for those who complain about the packaging and the fact that you may need to grab the discs' playing side with your fingers to get them out, there are a few workarounds: 1. buy a box of eyeglass lens cleaner wipes and place one between your fingers as you grab the disc, or 2. you can simply shake the packaging gently, allowing the disc to make its way out of the sleeve. I found the discs very easy to remove from the packaging.
Further BTW - all 4 films are available separately on BluRay in plastic clamshell packaging. That's a more expensive way to buy them, and you don't get the lobby cards, but if you want your discs on plastic spindles, that's the only option available.
Third - as to the movie transfers, I have so far viewed all but "Annie Get Your Gun," and the image and sound are really good in the three films I've watched, thought KMK has a high level of grain. The video & audio improvement in the films themselves are especially noticeable when set against viewing the included extra features which were done for the DVD release - the DVD images don't have the clarity of the BluRay images, and I don't think any time or $ was spent upgrading these produced-for-DVD features for hi-def.
