I first sore this film many years ago on the Cinerama extra wide screen with multi track speakers. The film was spectacular.
Acknowledging the limitations of a DVD, and the age of the film, visually this DVD was excellent. But why have they not included stereo sound? The music is so important, yet they have chosen to distribute this musical in mono, which to me is flat and lifeless. If you want a decent sound rendition, I suggest the CD version of the original sound track, which is infinitely better.
