The Wizard of Oz is a charming 1939 American musical fantasy film with legendary star Judy Garland as Dorothy, an innocent farm girl whisked out of her mundane earthbound existence into a land of pure imagination. Dorothy’s journey in Oz will take her through emerald forests, yellow brick roads, and creepy castles, all with the help of some unusual but earnest song-happy friends. The film starts in sepia-tinted Kansas in the early 1900s where Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado’s path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage. Notable for its use of fantasy storytelling, musical score and unusual characters, over the years it has become one of the best-known films and part of American popular culture.
