I don't know if this is a first for cable TV, but impresses the hell out of me! They didn't even stretch it!

Hurry up and you can see the transition from B&W into color. . .

I have the 2005 DVD of The Wizard Of Oz and it is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!!! It's possible that the transfer came from that DVD, But I don't know. Is it on Blu-Ray yet?

I saw it and recorded it in HD. It looked great!

One thing that is kind of funny about this movie is that you can tell the producers and filmmakers really wanted to play up the new color technology. All the sets and costumes and everything are super, super colorful. The munchkin village was like an LSD trip it had so many colors! Oz is a great movie, and one of the most "rewatchable" in film history, up there with Casablanca and a few others.

Sorry I missed this, but it's playing again at Regency Fairfax on November 28th which has me excited. I've never seen a print of the Wizard of Oz.

The Wizard of Oz will be released in Blu-Ray in 2009 for the 70th anniversarry edition. I thought the Wizrd of Oz was phony because they should have used a real steam powered robot.

But there weren't any steam powered robots back then! In fact, they didn't have any robots at all! :lol:

Steam powered robots existed but they had no balancing and could only walk in circles when supported by a boom.
