Judy Garland is Dorothy, a Kansas farm girl who dreams of going “over the rainbow,” in this magically sublime adaptation of the L. Frank Baum novel that’s become one of the most beloved film classics of all time. Swept away by a tornado to the wonderful Land of Oz, young Dorothy Gale embarks on a strange and thrilling quest to find the titular wizard, joined along the way by a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), a Tin Man (Jack Haley) and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) and pursued by the vengeful Wicked Witch of the West (the amazing Margaret Sullivan) and her evil flying monkeys! Will Dorothy ever return to Kansas and discover that there’s truly “no place like home?” Filled with bright, energetic performances, memorable musical numbers and eye-popping Technicolor visuals, The Wizard of Oz is sheer movie enchantment that casts a spell on children and adults of all ages. (Dir. by Victor Fleming, 1939, USA, 101 mins., Rated G)
