Default 'The Music Man' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'The Music Man.' He says this popular adaptation comes to Blu-ray in style! With excellent video, strong audio, and a few extras, this release is recommended.

For as long as Warner has supported the Blu-ray format, the studio has included Dolby TrueHD audio on its high-def releases.
How I wish that were the case. Far too many Warner discs are limited to only lossy Dolby Digital 5.1.

What I think you meant to say is that Warner has made a change from Dolby TrueHD to DTS-HD Master Audio in recent months.

Good review. But a correction is needed. Little Ronny did not sing "Gary Indiana. He actually sung on "The Wells Fargo Wagon". The Meridith Wilson museum (in Mason City, IA) is about 2 blocks from my office, so I'm pretty sure about that one. It's a keeper for me simply based on where I am at. Thanks for the review.

That's exactly what I meant, Josh! The review has been amended.

This was the first DVD I owned & I upgraded on day one. Hope to give it a spin soon.

There is a reprise of "Gary, Indiana" which is performed almost entirely by Winthrop (Ron).

Thanks, Whirlygig! I was beginning to think my memory had really failed me. When I was writing the review, I had Ronny Howard's voice in my head singing that song...

He also does a few lines of Gary Indiana in the reprise.
