1.0 out of 5 stars Major Disappointment!, May 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This Rodgers And Hammerstein Collection is almost a waste of money, especially for those who already own SOUTH PACIFIC and SOUND OF MUSIC BD!

I bought this set specifically for OKLAHOMA! and THE KING AND I. OK, OKLAHOMA! is the newly restored but only the Todd-AO version, not the CinemaScope version. Color are vibrant and details are good! Pop in the CinemaScope version, and one would immediately see the different - color are pale! I could live with that, just treat the CinemaScope version as Bonus Features.

How about the rest? SOUTH PACIFIC and THE SOUND OF MUSIC are exactly the same as the previous BD released, but now you only get the movie disc for THE SOUND OF MUSIC! 2nd BD (and DVD if that matter to you!) with loads of Bonus Features is missing. So hold on to your previous 45th Anniversary BD released!

Now let talk about problems for the rest of the titles. STATE FAIR is, well, kind of acceptable since it is the oldest. What you didn't get is the 1962 version, which was included in the 60th Anniversary Edition DVD set. As for CAROUSEL and THE KING AND I, it's disastrous! Both are BLUE all over! Color timing are obviously wrong to the state of almost unwatchable! For example, in THE KING AND I, as Deborah Kerr arrived in Bangkok, it just blue everywhere, especially her dress and the sky. But the moment she enter the palace, it kind of turn silver, and suddenly turn back to blue after Yul Brynner introduced his children! How could they get it so wrong? What wrong with their quality control?

To me, it's a complete waste of money, even though I got it at a discount price of $73.99 from Amazon! This set will not be on my shelf, and I want my money back! For those who still considering, forget it! This set is not worth the money!

Update:

I reviewed CAROUSEL and THE KING AND I with my THX calibrated TV again, and also compared it with both CAROUSEL and THE KING AND I 50th Anniversary DVD. Both improve a little but still appear artificially bluer then their DVD counterpart. Deborah Kerr dress still drifting between blue and silver instead of something in between, kind of greyish blue, which appear on the DVD. For me, OKLAHOME! alone is not enough to save the whole package, especially when I already have SOUTH PACIFIC and THE SOUND OF MUSIC BD. I am return it for a full refund.

I am in the same situation of having South Pacific and Sound of Music. So now, even at $50, I will wait for the individual releases- esp Oklahoma!
Thanks for your review....
