Willy-Wonka-and-The-Chocolate-Factory-Blu-ray-coverThere are several older movies that stick with you since you first saw them, and were lucky enough to be treated to seeing them again and again during holidays on TV, before we could instantly view them at any time. There was the Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music, Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. Yes, Musings did review the latest version of the movie based on the modern classic by Roald Dahl, which starred Johnny Depp in the Tim Burton remake, but this time we are going to focus on the original, and when you get to see this movie exactly how it is meant to be seen, you will wonder why it took so long to get to Blu-Ray.

From the very beginning, we get drawn into this amazing world of fantasy meets pop culture, all filmed in Munich, but we never really knew what town the Wonka Candy Company called home. We get treated to the song about the candy man, and it was such a hit that Sammy Davis Jr. took it to number one on the Billboard charts not too long after this movie was released.
