The Wizard of Oz (70th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]
Chances are immense that once upon a time in your childhood you had an immense adoration with this classical films that even our parents in their early years had the opportunity to watch it, well to others the scenario can be complex and more distinctive as they never had the exposure to those fancy modes of amusement more especially back in the days. Since its very first inception the film has never disappointed and lagged behind in terms of the sales and viewership to this very date, surely I hold the believe that this notion had to do with the then booming Hollywood era of filming in the 1940’s that had the insurmountable effect in what is today, hence they celebrate their 70th anniversary birthday. 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. So wouldn’t you like to share the experiences and the memories notwithstanding the fact that it has the captivating content?
