Oz in the News 8.3.11

Wizard of Oz pinball playfield coming together nicely  The Wizard of Oz Pinball tease continues but the latest update shows some significant additions to the machine, with some toys to be found on the left side of the playfield. If you’re looking for a full-featured pinball game, this certainly looks like it’s going to do the job. This already looks quite playable despite lacking all of the lights, artwork and remaining toys like the Flying Monkey and the house.

End of Process Means Beginning of This Rainbow  “This project presented a tremendous opportunity to connect present and past,” said Tony Tasset in a press release provided by Sony. “A rainbow provided a bridge both physically—arching across a section of the lot—and symbolically through its connection to specific films like ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ shot on the lot, and to light itself.” Byers said that neighbors to the studio were initially concerned that the rainbow would light up at night: “It will not be because rainbows are a daytime phenomenon,” Byers said. She added that the design seemed particularly appropriate for the studio lot, which was the former home of MGM.
