Thought to be the most-watched movie of all time, The Wizard of Oz is a cultural phenomenon unlike any other. With memorable characters such as The Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, and The Tin Man--who are hounded by the Wicked Witch of the West while they try to help Dorothy--the story is captivating and still loved today.

See and hear how M.G.M.'s Technicolor musical adaptation of L. Frank Baum's book has sent generations of fans "over the rainbow"!

Presented by local film scholar Lance Rhoades.
