THE WIZARD OF OZ MOST FAMOUS MOVIE OF ALL TIME

THE WIZARD OF OZ ~ MOST FAMOUS MOVIE

The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy film produced by Metro Goldwyn Mayer. It was directed primarily by Victor Fleming. Telecasts of The Wizard of Oz began in 1956, reintroducing the film to the public & eventually becoming an annual & holiday tradition, making it one of the most famous films ever made. The film was named the most watched motion picture in history by the Library of Congress, is often ranked among the Top 10 Best Movies of All Time in various critics' & popular polls. Today some of the film’s famous lines including "There's no place like home" & “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” are well known to several generations of moviegoers & modern pop culture.

DOROTHY & TOTO ~ PLAYED BY JUDY GARLAND & TOTO TOO!

The Wizard Of Oz is based on the 1900 children's novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum 1856-1919. The film starred Judy Garland as the young Kansas farm girl Dorothy who, after being knocked unconscious in a tornado, dreams about following a yellow brick road with her dog Toto to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard of Oz. Along the way Dorothy encounters a cast of characters, including the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion & the Wicked Witch of the West. Though the scenes in Kansas were shot in traditional black & white, Oz appears in vivid Technicolor, a new film process at the time.

THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST ~ PLAYED BY MARGARET HAMILTON

The film also stars Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Frank Morgan, Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton, Charles Grapewin, Clara Blandick, the Singer Munchkins' Midgets & let's not forget Dorothy's darling little dog Toto who was played by a female brindle Cairn Terrier actually renamed Toto.

YELLOW BRICK ROAD TO EMERALD CITY

The Wizard of Oz won two Academy Awards & was nominated for Best Picture of the Year losing to the Civil War era epic Gone with the Wind. The film was MGM's most expensive production up to that time. The beautiful song 'Over the Rainbow' won the Academy Award for Best Original Song which became Judy Garland's signature song. The film received several Academy Award nominations, including a special award at that year's Oscar ceremony for Best Juvenile Performer.
