Oz in the News 10.16.10

The Wizard of Oz: A Man Behind the American Dream Enchanting, joyful and magical are the words that describe the film, The Wizard of Oz. After its release in 1939, it became a classic and one of America’s most beloved films. Based on the 1900 novel by Lyman Frank Barns (sic), in some ways it seemed to have shaped the cultural consciousness of America. It is now even more significant, not only for revealing the development of theatrical fantasy within American life, but also for shedding light on a hidden narrative behind major current events around the world.
