Facebook Synopsis (courtesy of Warner Bros.): Warner Bros. continues to entertain the world with films passionately produced, selectively acquired, carefully preserved and impeccably curated for both the casual and ultimate movie lover to enjoy forever. Best of Warner Bros. 20 Film Collection: Musicals will be released February 12 and will include films such as Singin In The Rain, Wizard of Oz and many more.
WHO'S IT FOR? You like to sing and dance, well then this is a no-brainer. The list price for these 21 musicals is just under $100. Currently, Amazon.com has this set listed at $71, and Warner Bros has it for just $68.86. That's an amazing deal. There are hits and misses within the group. The picture quality of Showboat is terrible, which defeats the entire point of the film existing. Yet the film Seven Bribes for Seven Brothers looks fantastic. It's as if Warner Bros. just grabbed the closest DVD they could find. With some, you'll get the deluxe version of the DVD release, with others, you won't. The extras for A Star is Born are non-existent, while Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has a documentary, commentary, sing-along songs and more.
