Musicals Collection @ Wal-mart!

Recommended Posts

I went to my local Wal-Mart today and found a wonderful display of the most recent editions of some great musicals for sale ($16.87). So I purchased:

 

Carousel

The King & I

South Pacific

Guys and Dolls

West Side Story

 

I am so excited to finally pick up these sets. They are priced at much more on Amazon. They would make great Christmas gifts!

You got a steal provided you bought the right versions. Wal-Mart is notorious for selling out of print copies of some older DVD releases of movies that have been remastered since.

 

Check your packaging. If you bought the Rodgers and Hammerstein titles that have a gold banner at the top and bottom of the front cover art you really didn't get a great deal. The quality of those discs is a step up from frisbee status. Also, Guys and Dolls received a deluxe 2 disc treatment not too long ago, as did West Side Story in a really slick 'red box' with black lettering. If you bought any other editions of these movies you didn't get a deal. You got taken.

 

PS - Guys and Dolls Deluxe Edition is a bronze cover with lithographed art in black. The regular (and not recommended edition) has a colorized shot of Brando, Sinatra and company on the front with a sort of greenish blue background that fades into black around the edges.

 

Sorry to rain on your parade but you won't be pleased with the quality of that disc either!!!
