I grew up watching this movie. It was the most magical thing I had ever seen or imagined. I waited for it to air once a year.
Dorothy Gale is swept away from her home in Kansas to the 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 and help her friends as well.
Rated G however young children are often scared by witches and flying monkeys
Like millions of others, I watched this every year growing up--and it was something I looked forward to for weeks. I've never read the Oz books--my daughter, who devours everything, wasn't impressed by them--but this film can stand alone as a singular magical moment. Actually, many magical moments, all of which are still magical 80 years later.
Classic movie musical fantasy adventure. One of the all-time great movies. Never tire of watching this movie.
Taken from the score from the 1939 classic film, this particular Wizard of Oz soundtrack contains tracks by the original cast, including Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, and Bert Lahr, among others. The addition of extended versions of some of the songs ("If I Only Had a Brain," "Delirious Escape," "Cyclone," "If I Only Had a Heart," "If I Were King of the Forest"), as well as two outtakes ("The Jitterbug" and "Ding-Dong! Emerald City") and a few different versions of the famous "We're off to See the Wizard" make this particular album a standout, and a great way to remember and share an important part of American film and music history.

When a nasty neighbor tries to have her dog put to sleep, Dorothy takes her dog, Toto, and starts to run away. A tornado appears and carries her to the magical land of Oz. Wishing to return home, she begins to travel to the city of Oz where a great wizard lives. On her way she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who desperately needs courage. They all hope the all-mighty Wizard of Oz will help them, but they have to get to the Emerald City before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them.
