I always wondered why we saw it around tornado time... when I was little the part that scared me was when the cowardly lion jumped out of the window. I felt so sad for him, could never understand why he did that. But it is one my all time favorite movies. My husbands CB handle used to be Scarecrow, so it means more to me now. I have some collectible things around the house. And now I'm reading the books by McGuire, (Wicked, Son of a Witch and the one about the Cowardly lion).
