Based on a 1900 childrens novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum, THE WIZARD OF OZ received five Academy Award nominations on release. It won the Oscar for Best Original Score and Best Original Song and also gained a special award for Outstanding Juvenile Performance by a 411, sixteen-year-old girl who quickly earned her reputation as the worlds greatest entertainer. Put Judy Garland and Over the Rainbow together and you have, as her daughter Lorna Luft says, The most perfect song in one of the most perfect movies ever made.
The film has grown since its 1939 release into a beloved phenomenon that almost no other movie can rival. Oz made a new kind of history with its network television premiere in the USA in 1956: nearly 45 million people tuned in, marking the beginning of an annual tradition now sacred on both sides of the Atlantic. Dorothy and Toto, munchkins and ruby slippers, the Yellow Brick Road and Over the Rainbow, were not in Kansas any more and lions and tigers and bears, oh my! have deservedly attained iconic status.
A magical story featuring captivating performances, THE WIZARD OF OZ has ensured its position as a perennial classic and a treasured icon of popular culture. So gather the family together, flex those vocal chords and let the fun begin with the all-new sing-along version of THE WIZARD OF OZ
