I have the DVD special edition, and did have the US Laserdisc special edition some years - this latest BD version certainly seems to win on extras at least!

Clare Newsome:Indeed - two Blu-rays and a singalong DVD!

Wow! A must have. I've always been amazed at how good it looked on tv considering it was made in 1939.

I believe it was in the 60's that they re-released it in cinemas in widesceen - i.e. they cut the top and bottom off! I think there was a VHS version that used the cropped 'widescreen' print, that also cropped the sides, so you were missing bits all round (or was that Gone With The Wind?). You can get the same effect by zooming in on your television ...

D.J.KRIME:So is the BD in the original 1.33:1 or the cropped "widescreen"?

The original, I believe/sincerely hope. We haven't received review copies yet, so i've punted this question back to the PR to investigate....
