Return to Oz--in high definition

The Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie. I can imitate the Wicked Witch, Dorothy, and Glinda, and can quote dialog from memory.  You should see my sister-in-law Donna and me when we really get going! So it's only natural that I'd be excited about the reissue of the movie in Blu-ray. It comes out tomorrow in a couple of different formats..remastered DVD, Blu-ray, and the Ultimate Collectors Edition which includes the Blu-ray and a whole bunch of other stuff, including a coffee table book, and a collectible 70th anniversary watch. As I leafed through the flyers in the paper yesterday, I noticed that Target was offering an exclusive Blu-ray  (without all the bells and whistles) for around 34 bucks, but Best Buy had a collectors box in the $50 range. I'm a little muddled about which of the versions I'm going to buy (do I need the Wizard of Oz watch?), but must admit I've got a pretty bad case of Oz fever right now. Can't wait 'til tomorrow? Check out this video preview!

OMG, I can't believe you mentioned me in your blog but you didn't tell anyone that I am better than you are at the dialog (just kidding, we are both really good at that). Remember how we would get going and your brother wanted to knock our head together to make us stop, we did tend to go on and on. We don't have a blue ray yet but will get one evenutally once the price goes down a little and Tim belongs to a couple of movie clubs so we can get movies for a lot cheaper than buying them at a store. I would like the coffe table book, that would just be cool and since I have so much of the movie memoribilia around the house, that would just make everything right. I just had to tell you that you made my day, thanks! DBD
