Wizard of Oz (1939)
|There's no place like home and no movie like this one. From generation to generation, The Wizard Of Oz brings us together--kids, grown-ups, families, friends. The dazzling land of Oz, a dream-come-true world of enchanted forests, dancing scarecrows and singing lions, wraps us in its magic with one great song-filled adventure after another. Based on L. Frank Baum's treasured book series, The Wizard Of Oz was judged the best family film of all time by the American Film Institute. And this never-before-seen restoration looks and sounds better than ever. We invite you to embark for the Emerald City on the most famous road in movie history. Dorothy (Judy Garland), Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), Tin Woodman (Jack Haley) and Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) await you...|
"The Wizard of Oz has a wonderful surface of comedy and music, special effects and excitement... Roger Ebert
Editor's NoteYoung 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. This beloved, incomparable classic based on L. Frank Baum's turn-of-the-century novel is a musical and visual candy store. Dorothy's journey to find a way back to Kansas has permeated American culture and film for decades and remains one of the best musicals and children's stories ever filmed.

Customer Reviews of Wizard of Oz
A Must For All Oz Fans2/6/2000
You've never seen 'The Wizard of Oz' like this before. The color is gorgeous and the sound is incredible. Not only do you get the movie, there is a TON of extra footage: newsreel clips, cartoon clips, galleries, trailers, footage from the Academy Awards, a one hour documentary about the making of the film, a one hour promotional radio show, and hours of recording session material. You MUST own this DVD.
Dark Side of Oz10/18/1999
The Wizard of Oz should only be seen while listening to the Dark Side of The Moon. Start to play the Wizard of Oz and on the second lion roar at the very beginning of the tape or dvd start to play dark side! then kick back and be amazed! you will see some stuff that will give you goose bumps and never look at the Wizard of Oz in the same way! Have fun!
