The Wizard of Oz: 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Warner Home Video has been selling The Wizard of Oz: 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition since September but this Blu-ray is quite special. The two-disc numbered limited edition set has been mastered at 8K, the first time for a feature-length dramatic film. Each strip of the 3-strip Technicolor negative required 8K scanning. From these three 8K scans a “full film resolution” master was created in 4K. The final result is amazing picture quality at its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
