The magical world created by author L. Frank Baum is brought to the screen in Technicolor and with all the creative resources of MGM in this dazzling musical fantasy which is one of the most beloved films Hollywood ever produced. Judy Garland, at her most heartbreakingly earnest and innocent, is the farm girl Dorothy, who finds herself transported to the magical land of Oz where she confronts unimaginable dangers with the help of her unexpected new friends. The film received five Oscar nominations including Best Picture, and earned Oscars for Herbert Stothart’s orchestral score and the immortal ballad “Over The Rainbow” (by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg). 

DIRECTOR: Victor Fleming. WRITTEN BY: Noel Langley, Florence Ryerson, Edgar Allan Woolf. ADAPTATION BY: Noel Langley. CAST: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr. 1939. 101 min. USA. Color. English. DCP.
