"Scarecrow! Scarecrow! The soldiers of the King feared his name!" And so began the hard-to-forget theme song to THE SCARECROW OF ROMNEY MARSH. Walt Disney's thrilling three-part adventure was produced for his WONDERFUL WORLD OF COLOR weekly TV show and aired February 1964. Filled with action, drama and suspense, it follows the adventures of Dr. Christopher Syn -- brave priest by day, righter of wrongs by night. And, for the first time, presented in widescreen format on DVD. To make your experience even richer, there's a bounty of bonus material. Enjoy Walt Disney's TV introductions in widescreen. Then watch DR. SYN, ALIAS THE SCARECROW, the feature-length film created from the TV episodes for release in England. Discover the evolution of the Dr. Syn legend, from his origins in literature through Walt Disney's film version. And, finally, explore how and why Walt created a satellite studio in England in the 1950s. Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Maltin, this is a timeless collection from generations past for generations to come.
