Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to a magical land of Oz in a tornado and embarks on a quest with her new friends to see the Wizard who can help her return home to Kansas and help her friends as well.
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.Written by
Dorothy says Jimminy Crickets at one point in the movie. Jiminy Crickets is a euphanism for Jesus Christ. See more »
When the Cowardly Lion sings "If I Were King", he sings the line "Monarch of all I survey!" twice. The first time, you can hear him sing the word "Monarch", but his lips are not moving at all. See more »
She isn't coming yet, Toto. Did she hurt you? She tried to, didn't she? Come on. We'll go tell Uncle Henry and Auntie Em.

As in some other M-G-M musicals of the '30's and '40's, the heading "Musical Program" appears at the top of the card listing all the music credits (arranger, composer, lyricist, conductor, choreographer, and so on). See more »
The 2000 Warner Brothers DVD edition suffers from print defects due to shrinkage of the materials used in the restoration, and cuts out one line of Dorothy's which occurs during a reel change when Toto is being taken from Dorothy. As she whimpers Toto's name, there's a stutter edit where an off camera Garland repeats the first few words of a line, "Oh, To, oh Toto." The audio production team (who were doing the restoration) went back to the script and found no correspondence. So, the apparent mistake was excised. See more »
So many years has passed and i still love this! completely timeless and a beautiful story, Ms. Garland was perfect and even on that time every character was created to perfection, not CGI or many special effects and is just a perfect story for a Sunday night and a movie night with my friends, every layer from the characters is beautifully created and thanks to Hollywood that hasn't had the need to remake this beautiful master piece.
