Product Description

Amazon.ca

When it was released during Hollywood's golden year of 1939, The Wizard of Oz didn't start out as the perennial classic it has since become. The film did respectable business, but it wasn't until its debut on television that this family favorite saw its popularity soar. And while Oz's TV broadcasts are now controlled by media mogul Ted Turner (who owns the rights), the advent of home video has made this lively musical a mainstay in the staple diet of great American films. Young Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland), her dog, Toto, and her three companions on the Yellow Brick Road to Oz--the Tin Man (Jack Haley), the Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr), and the Scarecrow (Ray Bolger)--have become pop-culture icons and central figures in the legacy of fantasy for children. As the Wicked Witch who covets Dorothy's enchanted ruby slippers, Margaret Hamilton has had the singular honor of scaring the wits out of children for more than six decades. The film's still as fresh, frightening, and funny as it was when first released. It may take some liberal detours from the original story by L. Frank Baum, but it's loyal to the Baum legacy while charting its own course as a spectacular film. Shot in glorious Technicolor, befitting its dynamic production design (Munchkinland alone is a psychedelic explosion of color and decor), The Wizard of Oz may not appeal to every taste as the years go by, but it's required viewing for kids of all ages. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars a true classic! Jan. 21 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I haven't see this in a long time..the last time was when the movie aired on CBS all those years ago. It's as good as it ever was. I received this movie very fast and saved money compared to other local retailers in my neighbourhood. Would surely do business with this retailor again. Thank you for your service.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING... in 3D. A must see! April 14 2014
By Kato D
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you love this movie, then you'll love it in 3D.
3D sounds like a gimmic to sell this old movie, but the add impact and clarity the 3D adds to the movie is worth every penny.

The work gone in to transforming this 2D movie from 30's is stunning! It adds so much, but without taking a way from the original art direction, cinematography, the sheer beauty of the film.

Don't walk, run and invest in this classic ...done in 3D!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Classical 3D
The 3D (three dimensional) was very well done and the added materials were worthwhile, but I found the map rather confusing since it makes it look as if Dorothy went in a circle... Read more
