The only other movie I know of off-hand with Hamilton is the original 13 Ghosts from 1960 by William Castle. She plays the housekeeper and there are a few joking references to her role as the Wicked Witch.

Frank Morgan (the Wizard) is also in The Shop Around the Corner with Jimmy Stewart.

Neither are on Blu-ray, unfortunately. Just DVD.

Billie Burke was in a lot of films. My favorite is Dinner at Eight. Topper was also a hit. Both are available on DVD and show up from time to time on TCM.

This is down to $14.99 as of today. It's apparently the best transfer, so I may consider biting.

Yes, besides the 3d being strong for such an old movie, if you watch the 3d disc on your 3d blu player,and turn off the 3d, its not the same transfer from the 2009 disc,its brand new.

I was definitely planning on converting it to 2D...it's just not my favorite film to be honest. I am a fan of film preservation tho, and I am a fan of Oz...

Not sure what you mean by converting it, since the 2d option is already there.

Oh, I misread your post. I didn't know 2D was an option. I just sometimes convert 3D to 2D when I know the transfer is better and I don't care to watch in 3D.

The 3D turned off is the better option. The encoding frame glitch is not present in the Munchkinland scene. The regular version has the glitch, where the frame stops and jumps.
