Wizard of Oz 2017

OVERVIEW

The Wizard of Oz has some of the best-loved songs in American filmdom, including "Over the Rainbow" and "Follow the Yellow Brick Road". It tells the story of Dorothy, who lives with her dog, Toto, on a farm in Kansas. One day, a tornado sends the farmhouse spinning up into the sky with Dorothy and Toto inside it. They end up among the strange Munchkins in the Land of Oz. Dorothy eventually learns that the only way to get back home again is to ask the enigmatic Wizard of Oz for help. Her attempts to find the Wizard in the company of the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion are frustrated by the Wicked Witch of the West. Will they ever get back to the farm? The Wizard of Oz is one of the best-known American stories, containing numerous popular icons such as the ruby slippers, the Yellow Brick Road and the Emerald City.
