Movie of the Week: The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Victor Fleming directs Judy Garland, Margaret Hamilton and Ray Bolger in this fantasy musical where a teen is transported via tornado to a land of witches, munchkins, yellow brick roads and emerald cities.

Just timeless movie magic. Every Technicolor moment iconic. Every beat sweet with heart and sour with unusual risk. Judy Garland is beautiful and as pure as a glass of milk. Girl sure can hold a song. She’s the stuff of dreams. One of my faves. Watched in a triple bill with Return to Oz and Oz: The Great and the Powerful.
