In this charming film based on the popular L. Frank Baum stories, Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado’s path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage.
More legends and folklore have grown around The Wizard of Oz than any of film in Hollywood history. (Have you heard about the munchkin suicide? Or L. Frank Baum’s coat?) The beloved movie is a key part not just of cinema culture, but of American heritage.
