REVIEWS:





"The Wizard of Oz reached the Capitol's screen yesterday as
a delightful piece of wonder-working which had the youngsters' eyes
shining and brought a quietly amused gleam to the wiser ones of the
oldsters. Not since Disney's 'Snow White' has anything quite
so fantastic succeeded half so well."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; August 18, 1939







"The Wizard of Oz has a wonderful surface of comedy and
music, special effects and excitement, but we still watch it
decades later because its underlying story penetrates straight
to the deepest insecurities of childhood, stirs them and then
reassures them. As adults, we love it because it reminds us of a
journey we have taken. That is why any adult in control of a child
is sooner or later going to suggest a viewing of 'The Wizard of Oz'."

-- Roger Ebert; December 22, 1996
