      Comments about Yankee Doodle Dandy (BD):

      Years ago I had the privelidge of knowing a gentleman in his twilight years whom had been the HEAD OF DISTRIBUTION for Warner Brothers. His direct boss was Jack Warner himself! I asked him what his all-time favorite movie was, and he responded "Yankee Doodke Dandy"...and now it has seen the blu-ray light of day... I could not give this a higher recommendation . Rest in Peace Ed Williamson!

        Comments about Yankee Doodle Dandy (BD):

        One of the all time great classics from the golden era of Hollywood history shines anew in this absolutely amazing Blu-ray presentation. "Yankee Doodle Dandy" has never looked or sounded as terrific as it does on this new Blu-ray disc. It is an outstanding achievement, and a testament to the amazing talents of its cast, creative talents, and to the Warner Brothers organization itself.

        Reviewers on every site have been unanimous in their praise for the excellence of this Blu-ray release...Home Theater Forum, Bluray.com, Dvdtalk, and so many others have sung its praises for the razor sharp imagery, fine reproduction of tonality, both visually and aurally. While the DVD release from more than a decade ago was impressive for its time, the 6x improvement of resolution that Blu-ray provides, combined with the impressive job Warner has done with the new presentation (not a speck or dirt or damage to be found anywhere) makes this a slam-dunk for any classic film lover.

        Indeed this Blu-ray is a "Dandy"...and an essential part of any classic film lover's Blu-ray library. Bravo, WB!

        Great Movie...Should You Upgrade?

          Comments about Yankee Doodle Dandy (BD):

          I won't discuss the movie itself, because everyone knows it's a timeless classic and belongs in any film buff's collection. The real issue is whether or not owners of the 2003 2-disc DVD should upgrade to this new Blu-ray edition.

          The 2003 DVD has excellent picture and fine 1942 sound, along with hours of extras. The Blu-ray has slightly better picture and sound, but it appears to have been sourced from the same masters as the DVD. The Blu-ray includes most of the DVD extras, but leaves off a Cagney biography, some still galleries, trailers for other Cagney movies and one of the three WB cartoons. The two remaining cartoons are the only extras that have been upgraded to 1080p high definition. There are 41 chapter markers which do not match those on the DVD, but there is no chapter menu. Instead, the Blu-ray has a special Song Selection menu which will take you to any of the 20 musical sequences.

          If you have never owned this movie, the Blu-ray is probably the best version to buy (although the DVD is still available), but if you already have the DVD, you will have to make your own decision about upgrading. I hope the above information will help you make that decision.
