Timeless classic still entertaining the masses as each new generation comes in.

Dorothy is a young girl living on a Kansas farm, during a tornado, she, along with her dog Toto, is swept up and plonked down in a magical and mysterious land known as Oz. Desperate to get back home and under threat from a wicked witch, she is advised to seek out a great wizard who should be able to help her get back home. As she sets off and on her way, she meets and befriends a wonderful array of characters whom also have something to ask of the fabled wizard. It’s a journey that will prove to be both magical and fraught with danger.

The Wizard Of Oz is a film that has been pored over and dissected from almost everyone involved in the wonderful world of film. One thing that strikes me every time I view it is that there not only is no place like home, there is also no film like The Wizard Of Oz, and really, when all is said and done, there is unlikely to be another film of its ilk to ever grace the silver screen. Upon multiple viewings only the most biased of film fan could say that it is a technically perfect picture, it clearly isn’t, for at times it’s a wee bit creaky and when scrutinised, some of the performances in the piece are far from being of an excellent standard. Crucially, though, any misgivings are quickly erased due to the utter wonder of it all, you see this is because the film has a beguiling ability to transport everybody who is watching it and slot them into OZ alongside Dorothy.

The Wizard Of Oz appeals (and caters) to every demographic and pretty much any age group, we have adventure, the meeting of new friends, fears and trepidations, booming colour, songs to singalong with, and of course the total crux point of homely values. The Wizard Of Oz stands up well 80 years later because it taps into all the emotions available to the human being. Be it a young child spellbound on a first viewing, or an octogenarian couple of grandparents wistfully humming along to the tunes, it’s a film that shouldn’t be dissected looking for faults and hidden meanings, it’s a film that should be loved and praised for the ode to fantastical whimsy that it so obviously is.

The film of course will forever be associated with its darling star, Judy Garland. Viewing now, and knowing what a sad life she would eventually lead, The Wizard Of Oz is a fitting picture on which to remember what a magical and wonderful performer she was. Myself as a lump of waning middle aged machismo, has no shame in saying that as Judy sings Somewhere Over The Rainbow I melt and feel as though I’m being sent spinning into another world, that’s the power of the piece, because as a sepia Kansas becomes the glorious colour of Oz, nothing else in my world matters, I’m in hook line and sinker.

There are many interesting back stories to the picture, with books galore available to anyone interested. Some notes that might interest you being the original castings to be W.C. Fields, Shirley Temple and Deanna Durbin, munchkins running riot, drunken cast members, sadness and suicides, and grizzled old pros fighting hard not to let Garland steal the picture. Well it makes for a great read, for sure, but what remains to this day is one of the most beloved pictures to have ever been made, for once in the pantheon of great cinema we have a film that is termed a classic, that actually deserves to have that tag!

One of the great things about the advent of technology is that it can benefit old classic movies to make them better, for now we can view remastered editions of The Wizard Of Oz and appreciate even more what a great job the makers did. Keep your eyes on Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers during the film and see how they are the sparkling important character that they should be, or take in the brilliant work of the make up crew, the tiniest of rivets on The Tin Man a testament to the brilliant work that goes into bringing magic to our lives. Get the newest copy you can and then also see it on the biggest screen available to you because The Wizard Of Oz is a 10/10 movie. And then some.

‘Oh, Auntie Em, there’s no place like home!’
— Dorothy Gale

There were two beloved and highly fabled films that my immediate family and I—while in the comforts of our home—never missed during the Easter holiday weekend of each year: The Ten Commandments (ABC), and The Wizard of Oz (CBS) – an unsurpassed duo of the most tremendously blessed movies in motion picture history.

Many a generational – both past and present – has already seen this musical masterpiece, whether in its original film format, or in its stage adaptation. And without a doubt, it will continue to amaze future generations. Iconic and mesmerizing, The Wizard of Oz (produced during the Great Depression era) is a classic on so many great levels: Screenplay; cinematography; set design; costumes; beautiful Technicolor; the award-winning songs of Herbert Stothart (score), and Harold Arlen & E.Y. Harburg (lyrics: the pair wrote “Over the Rainbow”); cutting edge special effects … And superior performances. Yet another cinematic honoree in the Library of Congress National Film Registry, Langley, Ryerson, and Woolf’s The Wizard of Oz is set in stone as one of the greatest efforts in motion picture storytelling to ever be released for general viewing … Not to mention one of the most mimicked.

The cast includes: Judy Garland as our beloved and resilient protagonist Dorothy; Frank Morgan, starring in a quintet of roles: The Wizard, Professor Marvel, the Doorman, the Cabbie, and the Guard; Bert Lahr, in his memorable roles as both Zeke and the Cowardly Lion; Jack Haley as both Hickory and the Tin Man; Ray Bolger as both Hunk and the Scarecrow … And let us not forget the legendary Margaret Hamilton, as both Miss Gulch and The Wicked Witch of the West. These, in addition to a second to none list of supporting players, make for one exceptionally performed ensemble. Outstanding creativity. Exquisite direction.

It was not my wish, as I composed this review, to go into detail (not even minorly) concerning the plot here, because, as I’d indicated earlier, many a generational has already witnessed this filmed phenomenon. And for me to have rehashed a summary of its plot would have been simply redundant.

Directed by Academy Award-winner Victor Fleming (Gone with the Wind), The Wizard of Oz will always have the authority to command my love, my admiration, my awe, and my fascination. Always.

Five out of five well-earned stars.

A Wiz of a film, if ever a Wiz there was
The NBC Peacock began unfolding its wings. “The following program is brought to you in living color–with portions in black & white–on NBC.” That exclusive intro began my exposure to color television at Grandma’s in 1968. When Dorothy stepped out into Technicolor, I’ll bet my eyes just popped.

This is the Movie of All Time, folks–a status achieved during its long run as a huge annual TV event during that classic era whose programs now show up on TV Land network. In the 1970s, Peter Marshall once read the answer on Hollywood Squares as to the program seen more times by more people than anything else ever shown on television. It was “Oz.” Likewise, no movie has the hold on popular culture that this one does. What lion character ever since (i.e., Snagglepuss) hasn’t been an impersonation of Bert Lahr going, “Put ’em up, put ’em uuuuup!”

Few musicals offer an equal combination of lovable music and engaging story. Perhaps “The Sound of Music.” Hard to think of many Hollywood musicals where the story gets as serious as it does here when the Witch informs Dorothy that, “The last to go will see the first three go before her…and her mangy little dog too!” Yikes! In contrast, even the best of other Hollywood musicals seem to serve up fluffy, forgettable story lines that are mere backdrop to the song numbers that typically put the plot on hold.

I can’t say that “Oz” doesn’t have technical flaws or story element inconsistencies. It’s just that the astonishing production values all around so overwhelm the shortcomings. The tornado sequence is a 1939 special effects tour de force–incredible. And the Nutcracker-quality musical score offers songs tastefully interwoven with the action. Certain numbers like “Merry Old Land of Oz,” I never get tired off, though I like each of the songs.

Oz should be viewed in the lightness of spirit that it deserves. I mean look, we have Frank Morgan as the Emerald City gatekeeper, then seconds later as the cabbie with the Horse of a Different Color, then the Wizard’s palace guard, and then the voice of fire-and-smoke Wizard of Oz who bellows, “Step forward, Tin Man!” What other film could put an actor go through 4 quick-changes within 10 minutes to such an endearing result? “Oz” is as magic as those sparkling ruby shoes.

The early Technicolor process utilized triple nitrate negative strips–separately recording each primary color in light. This was done due to the lack of a suitable “color film” in 1939. That would quickly change–but films from years following suffered from hues that faded with the years, even original negatives. Because “Oz” was actually filmed on a black-and-white base film, the negatives never faded. So now we have home videos/DVDs of breathtaking color quality. Now, the tinted filters in the cameras that separated the colors onto the negative strips meant that intense illumination was required, rendering the filming experience miserably hot for the actors involved, especially Lahr. But they all hold up amazingly well.

“Oz” has a valuable message. As the pop group America once said, “No, Oz never did give nothin’ to the Tin Man….that he didn’t, didn’t already have.” If we have truly search, we can find within us–or create through trial, like the Lion’s courage–what we think we most lack. The Wizard (like the Lord) helps those who find help within themselves.

I feel sorry for the Almira Gulches who can’t treasure this film experience. They need to visit the Emerald City to get their own ticking Testimonials and find their hearts.

Didn’t bring your broomsticks with you? Well, I’m afraid you’ll have to walk.

A delight…even if some of the songs really make very little sense.
THE WIZARD OF OZ is a great film, so please don’t be offended and think I hate it–I don’t, and have seen it perhaps a dozen times or more. It is truly a classic. However, the last time I saw it, I was surprised because now that I am middle-aged, I finally really listened to some of the songs. While some, such as “Over the Rainbow” were amazingly sublime, a few surprised me because they had great music but the lyrics were, well, nonsense. Try listening to some of the songs and you might notice that the lyrics, while memorable, are a bit silly. Really…and this is the only reason I can’t give this film a 10.

However, despite this minor complaint, what else is there about the film that could be improved? Judy Garland is perfect and at her best. The cinematography, costumes, sets and everything about the film is first-rate–even if the story, at times, diverges greatly from Frank Baum’s original tale.

A film that you must see if you haven’t. Just try NOT to pay attention to lyrics in songs like “We’re Off to See the Wizard” and “If I Only Had a Brain”. It might give you a headache. Here are a couple examples:

“You’ll find he is a whiz of a Wiz! If ever a Wiz! there was. If ever oh ever a Wiz! there was The Wizard of Oz is one because…”

“I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry, If I only had a brain.”

Oh, and one other problem. At the end of the film, there is no resolution with Miss Gulch and you can assume she STILL is going to have Toto put down!
