THE GREAT & POWERFUL OZ



Lessons Learned:
The Wizard of Oz 70th Anniversary
Screening @ The Cinerama Dome
Edition

1. The restoration/remastering on this print was clearly done by the Wizard himself. Absolutely STUNNING.

2.
The Lollipop Guild is
still creepy, even after 70 years.

3.
The Scarecrow is ready to defend Dorothy and friends...with a handgun?!? How did I never notice this?


4.
"Click Your Heels" is actually a misnomer. Glinda tells Dorothy to "tap" her heels together three times.


5.
I want to open a bar and name it 'The Wash & Brush-Up Company'.


6.
You could really get away with degrading little people back in the day. Did you know that Toto got paid more per week than any of the Munchkins?


7.
Technicolor is still a gift from Movie Heaven.


8.
Amazingly, the Cowardly Lion is actually gayer
before he gets that darling red bow in his hair.

9.
Glinda must hot-box her pink bubble, 'cause she spends the entire film high as a kite...completely unconcerned with all the potentially dangerous goings-on around her.


10.
There's no place like home...and home is where you make it.
