Pressing Notes

When the transfer was prepared for The Wiz, during the final number "Home", the transfer was scanned down on the screen, putting Dorothy's face in the center of the screen. If you look closely, you can actually see the top fo the frame about ⅓ down the frame. No where is this more apparent than near the end of the number where the top of her head disappears out of frame.

Release History

The Wiz was issued on LaserDisc in February 1993 by MCA/Universal Home Video in a 3 sided CLV Widescreen (1.85:1) edition (Catalog #: 41426). The hatchet job that is the Pan & Scan transfer is completely corrected.
