Oz in the News 7.28.17

Dissecting the Classics – The Wizard of Oz The Wizard of Oz is certainly not a film for everyone, but I defy anyone to point out a meaningful flaw that doesn’t boil down to different standards in effects or personal preference. Unlike other game changing films of the time, this film neither feels dated because it has been done better since (Snow White) or because of unfortunate connotations (Gone With The Wind). It is a family movie with timeless values that transcend any meaningful barriers, which I think is why it endures today. Sure, being the source material for Wicked doesn’t hurt either, but the play feels like a companion piece and not a modern replacement.
