Celebrate The Wizard Of Oz 75th Anniversary

Wizard Of Oz: Ultimate Collector's Edition (Dvd) Dvd from Warner Bros.
The Wizard of Oz is a beloved American Classic.  Who doesn't remember curling up in front of the television as a child and becoming lost in the land of Oz with Dorothy, Toto and their friends.  I remember being quite terrified of the flying monkeys.  I am still not fond of them to this day. 
The Wizard of Oz will be celebrating it's 75th Anniversary.  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was a novel by L. Frank Baum.  It was adapted into a musical fantasy film in 1939.  The film stars Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Frank Morgan, Billy Burke and Terry the Dog as Toto.
The film tells the story of Kansas farm girl Dorothy.  Dorothy runs away with her pet dog Toto to keep Toto from being put to sleep.  She meets Professor Marvel a traveling showman.  The Professor convinces Dorothy to return home.
As Dorothy reaches her Aunt Em's farm she is swept up into a tornado.  Dorothy and her house land in the colorful Land of Oz.  There Dorothy meets the Good Witch Glinda and the singing munchkins. 
She sets off down the yellow brick road in search of the Wizard, who she hopes will help her get home.  Along the way she befriends the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow.  These friends have to find the Wizard while trying to avoid the Wicked Witch of the West. 
It is a beautiful timeless classic, woven into the memories of children for decades.  It is now been 75 years since the premiere of this fantasy adventure.
