This 12 disc set is well worth the money if you like musicals. Besides the actually movie some have old productions of the film or stage play. Also you can listen to just the songs or have the songs play and have the words across the bottom karaoke style. Film quality on my 46 inch HD TV is much better than I expected also. Many other items also.

I don't think I have ever seen Carousel on stage but my folks had a record of it when I was young, and I really liked it. Unfortunately, that leads to my only real complaint about the movie...
The music is splendid ("Carousel Waltz" in particular), the story compelling. There's even a bit of philosophy (the blossoms fell because it was their time). And Carousel isn't padded out with interminable dance scenes -- just one, six minutes of dancing on rooftops. The other big dance scene, Louise's Ballet, is the only dance I can think of that kept keep me not just away from the fast-forward, but glued to the screen! Susan Luckey, as Louise, is the star of the show (for her fifteen minutes).
One real problem with movie musicals is the opening up of the stage. We don't want to lose the stage, since this is, after all, a fantasy; but neither do we want just a filmed play. Some go too far into location (e.g., South Pacific) and others go nowhere at all (Oklahoma). Even Music Man is a bit too stagey. But Carousel has found just the right mix between the stage and location. The transitions from one to another are particularly well-done.
BUT... Somewhere between the play and the movie, we lost at least two songs, and whole verses of other songs! If I hadn't listened to that cast recording in my youth, I would never have known. But I did, and the missing music sorta spoils an otherwise superb movie.

For the record, this is one of my favorite musicals of all time. Five years ago I saw the fabulous Nicholas Hytner revival on stage, which only confirmed my feelings. It's a lovely story, with gorgeous music, and if handled correctly, the "darker" elements of the plot(sexism, Billy hitting his wife) are not trivialized or excused, but actually lend a layer of complexity to the characters and the story.
I'm not so keen on the movie, though. As much as I adore Shirley Jones in "The Music Man", she's rather shrill here and seems to talk in a falsetto voice, which is just plain weird. She sings beautifully, though. Gordon MacRae looks like he's not enjoying making the movie at all. I love the ballet scene with their daughter, but the switch between real beach shots and soundstage shots is almost funny -- yeah, we KNOW those rocks are made of foam. And Shirley Jones seems to wear different versions of the same dress throughout the whole movie. I mean, I know it's small town Maine, but come on -- there must have been more than one dress pattern in the general store.
There is a certain cheesy charm in the movie, and the ending scene does make me tear up every time, but that's more due to the glorious music than to the actual movie. It's a jewel of a musical play, and, as much as I hate movie remakes, I'd love to see a contemporary director take a crack at it. We need to have a "Carousel" that does justice to the score.

The VHS version of "Carousel" is good, but not like on a widescreen. The location of Maine is just beautiful and takes you back to that time in the 1870's. Shirley Jones captures the essence of "Julie" and she gives her depth to stand up to "Billy". She falls completely in love with him no matter what he says to her. The issue of spousal abuse is evident when it's brought up that he hit her. She defends him because he is unhappy and gives her support to that. Billy on the other hand,isn't the type to be married as he can't do what he wants. (I wonder how Frank Sinatra would have played this part) Gordon MacRae is good and paired again with Shirley to play a different pair. They do have the screen chemistry here very much. As far as the plotline for Billy goes, he changes his tune after he finds out he's to be a father and decides to provide for his family. But, when he and his ruffian friend, Jigger plan a robbery and it goes wrong, who is the one that is blamed?
Billy of course and he falls on his knife. No matter what kind of person he was, I think he has changed in all the time he was waiting to get into heaven. He almost spoils it by slapping his daughter. Louise seems to be just like he was at the age of fifteen. She is young and impressionable and thinks alot of people are conceited. Her schoolmate, the elder son of the Snow's isn't convinced of her actions. His mother, Julie's friend Carrie isn't too happy to be the mother of the many children and says so to her husband. Although, you know that she wanted to be "Mrs. Snow" as earlier in the play. But, the main focus is on Julie, Billy and their young daughter. The song "If I Loved You" seems to be the main theme of the star-crossed lovers. Does he love her? Does she love him?
