When it was released during Hollywood's golden year of 1939, The Wizard of Oz didn't start out as the perennial classic it has since become. The film did respectable business, but it wasn't until its debut on television that this family favorite

In addition, the sound could not be more perfect. In fact, everything about this DVD is just extraordinary. And, on top of that, my granddaughter not only watched this with me but sat there as we explored one of the many 'extras' to listen to the songs over and over so she could memorize them. Nothing is sweeter than having the apple of your eye singing, "Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead" or "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" as we're riding in a car.
My late mother, who was born in 1926, counted this movie as one of her favorites and could not wait to share it with her 4 children. I loved watching it with my 2 kids and now, another generation feels the same way. There is nothing worse than building up something and having that person say, 'meh' whether it's a restaurant or an attraction or a movie. So, it makes me happy that someone I adore also gives her stamp of approval on this movie that I hold so dear.

However, I'm 60 years old and have seen The Wizard of Oz countless times dating back to the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Even with having seen the film dozens of times before, watching this new 3D version was a fantastically wonderful experience and it was as though I was seeing it for the first time.
If you have the 3D equipment at home and are in to movie collecting, this is a must own DVD. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this DVD.
This includes 3 discs (2 with silk screen pictures):
1 blu-ray disc is the movie w/ special features (none of which are new to this set)
1 blu-ray disc includes the John Ritter movie and various OZ movies before the '39 classic as well as the '09 Munchkins featurette
1 DVD (not blu-ray) includes the 6-hour documentary "When the Lion Roars" (this is a double-sided DVD)
The packaging and the inside pictures of the discs were somewhat of a let down. They were not as colorful and vibrant as the '05 set. By the way, check out the pictures that I took with my digital camera and posted.
I did enjoy the featurette about the Munchkins. It included an interview with most of the surviving Munchkins (including the final appearances of Mr. Mickey Carroll and Mr. Clarence Swensen who, sadly, both passed away last year). The featurette also includes clips of the Munchkins' induction in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was very brief though (only about 10 minutes) and as far as I can tell this is the only new featurette produced specifically for the 2009 set.
The movie looked amazing and sounded beautifully, I can just imagine what Warner Bros. has in store for the 75th anniversary (something in 3-D?). I recommend the 3-disc blu-ray to anyone who collects WOZ memorabilia and movies as it will be a collector's item (just like the 4-disc boxed set which comes with lots of great stuff). However, if you're just looking for the movie, you may want to get simply the 1-disc blu-ray (if you can find it) or the 4-disc deluxe boxed set as this is less (online) than the 3-disc Emerald Edition.
Remember, only bad witches are ugly.
