They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but I tend to disagree. I recently found, not one, but two VHS box sets at a local flea market. You can check out the first one here, and then feast your eyes on the second one here:
This set comes with two VHS tapes, one of the film, and the other containing a 41-minute documentary on the making of the film. It also comes with two CD’s containing the entire soundtrack.
Suggested Retail was $119.99 but I paid just $20.00
Of course, this set also includes a book. In this case, its soft cover and has 30 pages. It’s a beautiful 11″ x 14″ large-format high-gloss publication containing two pages of full-color reproductions of movie posters, and then each section of the film is given its own chapter. Very rewarding reading!
Last but not least is the Commemorative Lithograph of an original concept painting from 1939:
Even the envelope it comes in is cool!
Fantasia might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but as a dabbler in the arts myself, I enjoy it as the ground-breaking piece of creativity it was, and still is!
Technically, lightning has struck for me three times, as I originally found a VHS box set of Aladdin while on vacation in Michigan a few years ago. But the box was so badly damaged, there was no point in trying to save it. But I still have the soundtrack, book, and lithograph that came with the set.
