Peter’s rating: Picture2

The wizard of Oz is a compelling classic tale all about Dorothy who thinks she’s lost forever when a tornado whirls her and her dog, Toto, from Kansas into a magical world. To get home she must find the Wonderful Wizard in the Emerald city of Oz. on the way she meets the Scarecrow, Tin woodman and Cowardly lion. But the wicked witch of the west has her own plans for the new arrival.

Made in the 1930’s, the wizard of Oz was one of the first technicolour fPicture3ilms of the time. Many of the props and costumes  are now famous world-wide and highly sought after. Such as the ruby slippers, worn by Judy Garland, are now found in the Smithsonian, where thousands of people see them daily. This film made a huge imprint on how films were made and will be a family classic for all eternity.
