Smart use of stereo sound and a wide screen
I watched this one in a theatrical presentation today. Very impressive.
It starts with a big understatement, cropped image frame with only a narrator from the center channel. But then the picture pulls to the full width of the screen, and the stereo sound kicks in with Wagner's fanfare.
The magnetic sound mix sounds great even today. Although the use of the surround channel is very limited, it fully kicks in during the climactic wedding scene with female and male choirs.
If you ever have the opportunity to watch it, please do. This is one of those gems you never knew existed.
