Wizard Of Oz

Wizard Of Oz, MTV – Throughout the history of cinema, there have been many releases that have been great. There is a small list of movies that can be described as “classic”, and then there are only a few that are “transcendental.” And then there’s “The Wizard of Oz”, a film that exists in a world completely different from everything else. On this day in 1939, made its premiere at the Strand Theatre at Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. The story, as usual, is relatively simple: A young girl who grew up on a farm in Kansas gets swept by a tornado and a magical universe full of witches alternates, talking lions, a race of people called Munchkins and a powerful magician can not be all it seems.
Directed by Victor Fleming, “The Wizard of Oz” is an incredible achievement. It showed the world the possibilities of Technicolor, turned a handful of songs (written by Harold Arlen and EY “Yip” Harburg) in instant classic and made a superstar of the young Judy Garland. The images and references in “The Wizard of Oz” have become common parlance, as the concept of the yellow brick road, ruby slippers, “No Place Like Home” and the idea that sometimes power is in the perception created by a person behind a curtain are figures that have become embedded in the way of speaking and thinking. Can you think of another film that has had that kind of impact on daily life?
Since its release, “The Wizard of Oz” has inspired a series of sequels, takeoffs, tributes and parodies, including the video for “Oooh” by De La Soul. Rah Digga stars as Dorothy and the three members of the group as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and Cowardly Lion. Their goal? Trying to find the way by land to meet Oooh Wiz (played by the topic of evaluation Redman) and the party at a club called Brick City. Like the film, is delightfully trippy and a great way to start the day.
