Classic family fantasy flick!

"There's no place like home. There's no place like home. There's no place like home."

It is far too inadequate and clichéd to award The Wizard of Oz the title of "classic". This is a film that essentially everyone holds in high regard. This is more than just a classic children's fantasy movie: this is a brilliant, groundbreaking family movie that encloses various poignant, relevant... read more

One of the greatest musicals this world will ever see. The beginning is a bit dry and slow but once the twister arrives, it's non stop 100% entertainment all the way to the end. Most of the songs are cute and catchy, but a few are letdowns, mostly the ones from the Lion.

As a kid, I loved the Munchkins and the Scarecrow i thought was hilarious throughout, but I also got nightmares ... read more

When I first saw this film on DVD, I wasn't that keen on it for some reason. I don't know why this is but when I saw it for the second time, I realised what an adventurous, beautiful, funny, imaginitive and tense family film this really is. I think The Wizard Of Oz is the oldest children's live-action film and it blew me away with how well it was filmed because the visual effects stunned me. No, t... read more

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'There's no place like home.'In 1939's iconic "The Wizard of Oz," Dorothy, played by Judy Garland, utters this sentimental favorite when she finally returns from her adventure in Oz. Despite the fact that she's experienced the most magical place imaginable, none of it compares to rediscovering the simple pleasures of her room, her family, and her humble Kansas homestead. The line is now a favorite proclamation for any world-weary traveler who longs for the familiar'Pay no attention to the man "

"I'll admit, it has been an extraordinary hot minute since I have seen "The Wizard of Oz," but it’s still a wonderful film even while witnessing it as an adult. Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) is a young girl from a farm in Kansas who gets whisked away by a tornado and lands on the land of Oz. There, she comes across colorful characters like Glinda the Good Witch (Billie Burke), the brainless Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), the Tin Woodsman (Jack Haley), the Cowardly Lion (Bart Lahr), a town full of Munchk"

"Margaret Hamilton was badly burned during a scene in which her character, the Wicked Witch of the West, "vanished" in a burst of flame and smoke. A delay in activating a trap door left her exposed to the pyrotechnic device. Her stunt double was also injured in a scene involving a smoking broomstick. Buddy Ebsen suffered a severe allergic reaction to his Tin Man makeup that resulted in a collapsed lung and lifelong breathing issues. He was unable to continue working on the production and was repl"
