The Wizard Of Oz (1939) (re:98)
This perennial family classic, first released in 1939, features Judy Garland as an 11-year-old schoolgirl who dreams of going to a trouble-free world. That opportunity comes after a tornado rips through Kansas and she awakens in the land of Oz. Slipping on a pair of ruby slippers and setting her sights on the Emerald City, where she hopes to find the Wizard who will send her home, she embarks on a magical journey down the Yellow Brick Road. Upon its initial release: "And because it deals with the Make-believe, production boundaries have given way to new approaches in sets, costuming and conception which make 'Oz' a beautiful thing to behold in Technicolor. Merit on every account is present, but, despite it all, the answer on acceptance rests with the public. If there is any justice, however, 'Oz' should be, and may be, a roaring success."
