The Wizard of Oz
Cast: Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley
Lions and tigers and bears, oh, my! Our intrepid Dorothy flies into town on a tornado, and meets up with a trio of unlikely travel companions (a Scarecrow, a Cowardly Lion, and a Tin Man) for an unusual pilgrimage. Their quests to find a way home, intelligence, courage, and heart are rendered in glorious Technicolor jewel tones. Following the Yellow Brick Road, they encounter indifferent natives, a Wicked Witch, flying monkeys, and forbidding locales.

What Kids Like: Even in an exotic new land, what child hasn't harbored a sudden and powerful wish to go home?
