Description

Let's cut to the chase because it is obvious that all film collectors either need this or already have the DVD -- yes, you DO need to upgrade from the DVD to this new Blu-ray edition. It IS that much better.

All of the errors in the DVD have been corrected. The scratches during "Dirty Hands, Dirty Face" and much of the rest of the Coffee Dan's scene have been eliminated without a trace. The mis-matched synchronization of the entire reel before "Blue Skies" has been fixed. The artificial shaking of the inter-titles to disguise them being free-frames has been steadied. In the extras, they have put in the correct two scenes from "Gold Diggers Of Broadway" -- we actually see Nick Lucas sing in 2-strip Technicolor "Tip-Toe Through the Tulips" this time. As an additional bonus they have added two shorts which have cameo appearances by Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler at Santa Anita Raceway. Most of the printed extras from the DVD set are in the book except for most of the postcards, but they have added some great portraits, bios, and an illustrated essay on the earlier film sound systems.
