A little princess is a great movie, but I just can't get passed a more than a half hour of The secret garden. The lack of good lighting makes it depressing to watch not sure what the makers of this movie were trying to acheive but I don't even bother watching it.

Brigette is right, It's been my experience when Swap a dvd puts information about a dvd they get it from which frequently has errors about it's products.

When you tell them about the errors they tell you they get their info from and that you must have a different version of a dvd that was only released with one disc with both movies and its bonus features on ONE DISC. when a site charges you per disc it's the requestor who's losing out because they've paid 2 credits for a 1 disc movie.

The format specs on the DVD case state that this DVD contains both the 16x9 Letterbox version and the Fullscreen version of these two movies. However, the disc only contains the Fullscreen version. This is true of all of the 2006 A Little Princess/Secret Garden disc sets.

"We first saw "A Little Princess" on HBO and knew right away that it's a "must add" DVD to our collection, even better...a DVD with two of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classics. Any adult can relate to the two movies here and the stories are beautifully told on film adapted from the books. There are other versions which we haven't see and am pretty sure they're all as good. My girlfriend became very emotional [about Sarah Crewe] and loved it (she's a kid at heart) I'm glad she did, because essentially, I wanted this movie for her because she is my little princess.

The double-featured disc is a great value, but a widescreen format would be a good option, there isn't one despite the description from the case stated that there is both full-screen & widescreen versions: this is pretty misleading because I believe the two formats were meant for the 'Theatrical Trailers' and NOT for the movie if you read carefully along the print. Also, printed inside on the center hub of the disc, it states that both versions are 'Full Screen', by then this is too late to sort out the confusion if you are very particular about having the widescreen I'll minus one star for this making a total 4 out of 5."
Misleading Claim!

"Like others here, I was disappointed to find that neither film was presented in the letterbox format despite the claim on the box, so I sent an e-mail to WHV to complain about it. I was told that they would replace what I had with two DVDs covering the individual titles once they received it from me in the mail. I thanked them and suggested they keep the product off the market since the letterboxing mentioned on the cover was incredibly misleading. Shortly after I received the two DVDs, I discovered that "The Secret Garden" and "A Little Princess" had been available in a similar double-feature set but presented on TWO discs instead of one. Apparently some genius in Warner's marketing department came up with the idea of saving money by reducing the two DVDs down to one but neglecting to take into consideration that a format would have to be sacrificed in the process. They just kept the text from the original set's packaging, which is pretty damn lame if you ask me. And to make matters worse, I still see this thing being sold in large quantities at Safeway and Target stores as well as here on Amazon even though WHV obviously know they've got what I consider to be unmarketable merchandise on their hands. At least Amazon lets you know that you're getting the fullscreen format with this one."
Two great movies for the price of one!

"Two of my all-time favorite movies on one DVD, with special features and trailers to boot - could it get any better? I argue, it cannot!"
