The Wizard of Oz (1939 classic)

The classic version that had changed movies forever. As it became a smash hit, as everyone loved that movie. Children, adults, old people and more. It went throughout generations in the time of these movies, as it’s all thanks to MGM. L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz”.

Starring Judy Garland as a young teenager, she was really good as a young actress. There was also Frank Morgan as the wizard, Prof. Marvel, a soldier, a guard at the door, as he was the coachman driving the horse. As it can change colors. Finally, there was Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, and Margaret Hamilton. They played as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, as Margaret played a wicked witch.

As it spread throughout generations, after these people that did this movie passed away, they did parodies of this. They made some parts into parodies funny, as you can laugh hard until you cry. As the very first movie, there were many versions after that. There was even a cartoon version with Tom and Jerry as they ran into that classical movie. Only that version was edited in that.

What was famous, was Judy Garland’s song of “Over the Rainbow”, and other songs also. Such as sung my midgets as the munchkins, the people in Oz, and people who in the orchestra that did this. But what really changed movies forever, was the color. From black and white Kansas to colorful Oz, this was the very first movie to be in color. First this, then “Gone With The Wind”, and movie directors that did as they made movies in color.

There was also, special effects. Such as red smoke, flames, the tornado, the house falling, the striped socks, the wicked witch flying in the sky on the smoke, lightning, melting, flying monkeys flying, colors on the horse, the alien head of Oz, the things inside the tornado, the whistle toot, and more. Those were really good.

With best costumes, designs, talking trees, memorable quotes, and  funny scenes, this took was worth a lifetime on changing movies in film history. As we all know the whole story, the ruby slippers after that, were placed in a museum we all know of. As the very first pair. There were other ruby slippers that shoemakers created, with actual rubies on them. As they cost a billion dollars when you look at them.

As there were merchandise, and more, this movie is one of the very firsts that changed films forever, in film history. As kids and many people can watch it again. Maybe even a hundred times.

For what I rate on this, 8/10 stars.
