My mother used to force us watch that damned movie! Those flying monkeys scared the hell out of me. Once I grew up, I swore to myself I'd never watch it again. And I haven't! But don't ask me how many times I've seen Pirates of the Caribbean...

i guess when you live in Kansas and know what it's really like the movie just isn't as magical as it is for others-lol. i have noticed that when you click the font color it sometimes starts in odd places in the page script- especially in reply mode. When you click on the font color does a box full of colored blocks pop up at the top of the page?

Ha! I'm actually watching this right now... Slightly more cheesy than I remembered... Though I'm curious to read the book(s) to see how they differ. I've been doing that, recently, with Alice's Adventures In Wonderland.

OZ...yes, it's here on one of the shelves as well. Hard to believe it's THAT old now.

I will have to watch it again sometime when I can sit long enough. I never did see it in color until we bought the disc (parents didnt' get a color tv until 1976).

You don't find films like that anymore that have such longevity and popularity. Simple but fun everyone can watch with no obvious message in it...other than there's no place like home. In five years...ask someone about "Wall-E" (that 'Short Circuit" robot ripoff) and see what they say.

"Sound of Music"..sorry, I'll pass on that one. Too sugary sweet for my palate. "Mary Poppins"...saw it when it came out but have no desire to own it.

That movie came out the year my husband was born. Seems almost a sacrilege not to watch it. And of course the book and its sequels were better. Really surprised with the phenomenal success of the movie Hollywood didn't go and do all the other books in the series. Sad. Two anecdotes from the film follow. The long coat worn by the fortune teller, Professor Marvel was bought at a second hand store, and the owner's tag was it in. His name? L. Frank Baum. My mom was a teenager at the time, and she read in a movie magazine where little people were auditioned for the part of the Munchkins, and arrived by train, from all over the states, when it was time to film it. Can't help but wonder if any of them became life long friends, when they all wound up back at their various homes.
