The Wizard of Oz


Today is the anniversary of the movie The wizard of Oz. I love it! It´s amazing!

The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy film directed primarily by Victor Fleming from a script mostly by Noel Langley, Florence Ryerson and Edgar Allan Woolf, with uncredited contributions by others. It was based on the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, who died twenty years before this film was released.[1] It features Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr and Frank Morgan, with Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton, Charles Grapewin, Clara Blandick and the Singer Midgets as the Munchkins. Notable in its use of special effects, use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling and unusual characters, The Wizard of Oz has become, over the years, one of the best known of all films.

In the story, Dorothy Gale, a 12-year-old Kansas farmgirl, is knocked unconscious during a tornado. She, her dog Toto, and the farmhouse are apparently transported to the magical Land of Oz, where she sets out on the yellow brick road to the Emerald City to ask the Wizard of Oz to return her to Kansas. During her journey, she meets a Scarecrow, a Tin Man and a Cowardly Lion, who join her, hoping to receive what they lack themselves (a brain, a heart, and courage, respectively). They are pursued by the Wicked Witch of the West, who wants her dead sister's magic ruby slippers, now worn by Dorothy. At the end of the film, Dorothy finds herself back in her own bed at the farmhouse, but in Kansas, where her aunt tries to convince her that she dreamt her adventures in Oz.

El mago de Oz
(1939) es una película musical de fantasía producida por Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Contó con las actuaciones de Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Billie Burke y Margaret Hamilton. En la actualidad es considerada una película de culto, a pesar de su antigüedad y de su intento creativo inicial de ser una fábula cinematográfica para niños.
En la historia, Dorothy Gale, una granjera de Kansas de 12 años de edad, es golpeada hasta quedar inconsciente durante un tornado. Ella, su perro Toto, y su casa son transportados a la tierra mágica de Oz, donde emprende el camino de baldosas amarillas hacia la Ciudad Esmeralda para pedir al Mago de Oz a su regreso a Kansas. Durante su viaje, conoce a un espantapájaros, un hombre de hojalata y un león cobarde, que la acompañan a Oz, con la esperanza de recibir lo que ellos no tienen ( un cerebro, un corazón y coraje, respectivamente). Son perseguidos por la Bruja Malvada del Oeste, que quiere las zapatillas mágicas de color rubí de su hermana muerta, ahora usadas por Dorothy. Al final de la película, Dorothy se encuentra de nuevo en su propia cama en la granja, pero en Kansas, donde su tía trata de convencerla de que ella soñaba con sus aventuras en Oz.

  2. I just love the Wizard of Oz! It was one of my favourites as a child, and still is now. I am so glad my son likes it too. And I was so happy to see Wicked, which put a different spin on the whole story.
