The Movie: The Wizard of Oz (1939)
What Is It?: Do you really need to know this? OK, rock dweller, it’s only the most enchanting musical fantasy ever made, full of color, terror, and lovely characters. Its only flaw: the main character’s motivation. Why would anyone wants to flounce around in the pig slop of a sepia Kansas farm when they could be grooving with lions, scarecrows, and flying monkeys in fantasy land?
Why Today?: For many of us growing up way back in the twentieth century, The Wizard of Oz was a TV staple at Easter time thanks to NBC.
