Ordered it and was sent to the "Your Order Was Successful!" page, then I recieved an email that said I need to contact them to give them more information.

Hmmmmmm.

I got the same page, but didn't get that "contact us" e-mail. My order status shows "Accepted"... ?

Same here. Guess it was a glitch.

If you look around, you can use the 12% off and $1 shipping coupon for Overstock. The terms say you need to buy one non-media item, but the system let me use it for just the boxset (though it charged me $1.40 for shipping; I'm not going to argue the point).

Total cost: $22.44

So can someone explain what the fuss is about the Garland set? I obviously know Wizard of Oz, and I've heard of a couple of others. Are they classics?

Haven't seen any of them myself except for Wizard of Oz (and I already own the boxset of that)... but at such a good price, it was a no brainer blind buy for me.

Does the Judy Garland set have snapper cases?

This is just the single-disc "Wizard Of Oz", correct? Is it a flipper? I was researching this set and saw that it includes plenty of special features for that film alone.

7 films, 7 discs and snapper cases.

the movies in the box set are "classics" in the MUSICAL genre.
all are musicals (not that there's anything wrong with that).
the wizard of oz is the single disc version, filled with bonus features and is NOT a flipper. it is definitely jammed packed with extras for a single disc (right down to all of the audio excerpts of rehearsals for the musicals numbers, including mistakes and judy garland coughing).
the movies aren't necessarily blockbusters, but at $20+ for 7 films it's a no-brainer.

Thanks Bwsmom! I got it this time.

BTW, DVDTalk has a 12% off coupon that I applied (and it worked, though I didn't get the $1 shipping, I had to pay $1.40.) You can find it by clicking on "coupons" at the top of the page and scrolling to Overstock about half way down.

Thanks. I already have the 2-disc Oz SE. I'll mull this set over, but buying more random DVD's is really the last thing I need to be doing.
