Format: DVD
I agree whole heartedly with the other reviewers. This movie is a minor classic for the Disney Studios and they treat it like this? Why would you bother to colourize this movie...it is a B&W movie...keep it is such. Please scrap this release and re-do it. A suggestion is a double DVD package with both this movie and its sequel, Son of Flubber. Each DVD should have some archive extras as well as a newly produced retrospective look back at these movies. How about including Donald Duck's "Modern Inventions" short? Disney did brilliant work with, Old Yeller, Pollyanna, The Parent Trap and Swiss Family Robinson DVD releases...but treats this movie in such a second rate manor?
The live Disney pictures are adored by millions around the world. The DVD releases of these movies should be given the greatest respect when it comes to packaging...and pleeeeease...no more colourization.

I saw this movie upon its theatrical premier. It ran for about three months (!) at my local cinema. It was a comedy masterpiece in its era. So _why_ did Disney mess it up by not presenting it in its original widescreen format, and not in its original (Academy Award-winning) black-&-white photography?
This release is truly a disgrace. The present Disney Company is, in my opinion, likewise a disgrace to Walt Disney and his high standards.
I cannot recommend this film in its present version. I suggest that Disney fans and general buyers wait for a release that is true to the film.

Format: DVD
The screen makes me give it at least one star. This does not even deserve that.
Waste of time and money. Why ? This film was shot in 1.75:1 (widescreen). Please show it in that. This film was an Academy Award® Nominee (1962) -- Best Art Direction, Set Decoration, Black and White -- Carroll Clark, Hal Gausman, Emile Kuri. Why colorize an Oscar Nominee ?
Try again Mike. Do it the way Walt would have wanted it.

Format: DVD
This movie is almost unwatchable because it is not in widescreen format. There are numerous scenes where two people are talking and you see less than half of each person's face. Every scene is arbitrarily cropped. It's not even pan and scan! The other issue is colorization. I would have much preferred black and white, but I can live with the artificial color. YMMV.

Format: DVD
This is the "COLORIZED" version of this Disney film that they butchered by in the 1980's for the Disney TV channel. Disney must think that all their customers are adolescents and kids who don't know the difference, WRONG!
I picked this up to buy in the store, saw that it was colorized, and immediately put it down. I will NOT support butchering of films. If Disney wants to release the COLORIZED version, fine, do it, but release the BLACK AND WHITE one as well for us purists who want them as originally intended.
BAD, BAD, BAD, HOUSE OF MOUSE choice here. Hope they get rid of their head of DVD development. He/she must have been born in the 1980's!!!!

I was so excited to buy this DVD. I was expecting widescreen and original black and white. This would have preserved the presentation the film was meant to be seen in. I already own the video release from several years ago (pan and scan but thankfully black and white) and I never expected the new DVD to actually be WORSE than the video. I can only hope that Disney learns something from all of the unhappy customers out there and re-release this DVD in its proper form. Warner Brothers finally did the right thing with WILLIE WONKA, so I think that there is hope. Why own a DVD player or an HDTV if DVDs are released pan and scan?

Format: DVD
So much for the wonders that the DVD format (at the dvd price) can do for your viewing pleasure. Disney has taken a wonderful gem of a movie and colorized it, which is bad enough. But they also cut off the edges and made it into standard vhs fare, no widescreen. Also no extras and Disney has a ton of great goodies in the vault for this movie. What a shame they rushed this into the market to make a quick buck. So may people bought this and did not know until too late it was not widescreen, so be warned.
The movie itself is a gem and I seperately reviewed the vhs version. I will keep my old vhs copy for now, and boycott buying any films that disney treats like this. They can do good when they try, see some great disney widescreen films for sale here at ... such as "Old Yeller", "Swiss Family Robinson" Pollyanna", "The Parent Trap", and some animated gems as well. Also the Disney Treasures are a nice collection as well.
