Do you ever wish you could travel back to that carefree time in childhood when the most pressing decision was whether to first jump in the puddles, then climb a tree? Well, you've always been able to do that - just tap your heels together and say "There's no place like The Wizard of Oz!" Rejoin the characters you loved: the cowardly lion with his scaredy-cat ways; the dim-witted scarecrow with his head full of straw; the empty tin man who's missing a heart, along with many others. Introduce your children to this magical story and watch their own excitement turn into a life-long love of this classic film.

Synopsis

Timeless telling of the classic children's story by L. Frank Baum about the magical, musical, mythical land of Oz. During a tornado in her native Kansas, a farmgirl named Dorothy is transported "over the rainbow" to a place where witches lurk, scarecrows talk, lions cower and apple trees throw their fruit at you. There, while embarking on a dangerous journey to the Emerald Kingdom to meet the mysterious and wise Wizard of Oz, Dorothy finds some new and wonderful friends. By the time she has finished her fantastic voyage, however, the sweet and spunky girl has learned a lesson she'll never forget: there's truly "no place like home."

Description

A young girl named Dorothy is bored of her gray life on a Kansas farm. When her house is whisked away by a tornado it lands somewhere over the rainbow in a Technicolor world, and Dorothy knows she's not in Kansas anymore. The beloved, incomparable classic based on L. Frank Baum's 1900 book is a musical and visual candy store. The film has proved so influential that it is impossible to even enumerate those of its elements which have permeated other cultural mediums, or even subsequent films which quote it visually or verbally. Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Best Picture. Academy Awards: Best Original Score, Best Song ("Somewhere Over the Rainbow"). **On moratorium from MGM.
