Movie synopsis
Young Dorothy is bored of her gray life on a Kansas farm. When her house is whisked away by a tornado, it lands somewhere over the rainbow in a Technicolor world, and Dorothy knows she's not in Kansas anymore. This beloved, incomparable classic based on L. Frank Baum's turn-of-the-century novel is a musical and visual candy store. Dorothy's journey to find a way back to Kansas has permeated American culture and film for decades and remains one of the best musicals and children's stories ever filmed.

A timeless classic found in a new age

The Wizard of OZ was the first nation wide theater released color firm & a timeless classic. With this new Blu-ray edition, you can watch it as it was meant to be viewed.

Young Dorothy is bored of her gray life on a Kansas farm. When her house is whisked away by a tornado, it lands somewhere over the rainbow in a Technicolor world, and Dorothy knows she's not in Kansas anymore. This beloved, incomparable classic based on L. Frank Baum's turn-of-the-century novel is a musical and visual candy store. Dorothy's journey to find a way back to Kansas has permeated American culture and film for decades and remains one of the best musicals and children's stories ever filmed.

The Wizard of Oz

The film follows 12-year-old farmgirl Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) who lives on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, but dreams of a better place "somewhere over the rainbow." After being struck unconscious during a tornado by a window which has come loose from its frame, Dorothy dreams that she, her dog Toto and the farmhouse are transported to the magical Land of Oz. There, the Good Witch of the North, Glinda (Billie Burke), advises Dorothy to follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City and meet the Wizard of Oz, who can return her to Kansas. During her journey, she meets a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), a Tin Man (Jack Haley) and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr), who join her, hoping to receive what they lack themselves (a brain, a heart and courage, respectively). All of this is done while also trying to avoid the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) and her attempt to get her sister's ruby slippers from Dorothy, who received them from Glinda.

One of the most cherished fantasy films ever!

One of the most cherished fantasy films to ever grace the screen, "The Wizard of Oz" stands as a crowning achievement in 1930's film making. The special effects are highly impressive considering the limited technology available at the time, not to mention they are infinitely more endearing than most CGI effects present in today's films. The lavish sets, impeccable costume design, and glowing Technicolor help to create a convincing and enchanting Land of Oz. And though obviously filmed on a soundstage, the sets never seem confining; thanks largely in part to the meticulous backdrop paintings used to add depth to the foreground. The musical numbers are quite lively & catchy -- never slowing the pace of the film -- except perhaps for the Lion singing "King of the Jungle". Judy Garland truly shines in her portrayal of Dorothy, perfectly capturing the wide-eyed innocence of her character. She definitely deserved the special Oscar she was awarded for her performance. Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West, Ray Bolger as the Scarecrow, and Frank Morgan as the Wizard also turn in praiseworthy characterizations. Definitely timeless in every sense of the word, this film is recommended to those of all ages – a 10/10!

The Wizard of Oz (2005 Re-Release)

I LOVE THIS MOVIE- A classic, and it always will be a classic!!! Dorothy and her dog Toto get swept away in a tornado and end up in Oz- specifically Munchkin Land. Along the way, Dorothy meets Glinda who gives her the GORGEOUS ruby red slippers, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and of course, the Wicked Witch. On a journey of self-discovery, this movie is filled with vibrant colors and songs and was clearly made ahead of its time.

Single disc version will save you $$, and the feeling of being "taken".

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Save your money, and get the single disc set. The extra disc with MGM documentary has little to with "OZ", and is replayed quite frequently on PBS. Another disc gives you a quite bad, made for TV movie "The Dreamer of Oz".
Single disc version has all the meat and potatoes the ever more expensive higher disc count sets have. In my opinion, the multiple disc sets offer little "extra" except filler.
As far as the actual movie goes, I have to say nostalgia was my driving force for buying this, and the movie no longer seems as "special" as it did when I was a child. Still a "must" for children.
This is not Star Wars, it is a 70 year old movie that Blu-Ray adds little to over DVD versions. Yes, the colors are vibrant, but you can only do so much with 70 yr old film. You can not make it sharper than the original film. I feel any newer DVD player will give a DVD roughly the same video quality as the Blu-ray in this case. Blu-ray is more tailored to films SHOT IN HD FORMAT.
If I had this purchase to do over again, I feel I would have been just as happy with the DVD version from the Walmart $5 bin.
