The Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection (US - BD RA)
A bunch of song & dance numbers are on their way to your Blu-ray player...
Starring: Living Hills
Released: 6th May 2014
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will be releasing
The Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection, marking the first Blu-ray appearances of a number of the duo's most celebrated musicals, including State Fair, Oklahoma, Carousel, The King and I, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music. The set features brand new 4K digital restorations of The King and I and Carousel, the only two films made in CinemaScope55. Oklahoma! has also been meticulously restored in 4K from 8K scans of 65mm Todd-AO film elements in its original road show version at the unusual original frame rate of 30 frames per second. The only bonus materials listed in the press release are a Sing-A-Long version of The King and I and 'more than an hour' of behind-the-scenes features for Oklahoma!, but I assume DVD extras will also be included. The Todd-AO and CinemaScope versions of Oklahoma! will each have their own discs, as will the theatrical and extended roadshow versions of South Pacific.
