    It is a classic and I love all the actors and actresses in it-such perfect casting. It still scares me though in the flying monkey part. Judy Garland's voice is magic to me and my favorite would have to be Meet me in St. Louis. Or Easter Parade. Thanks for the memory!!

    It's fine having a movie touch you in a good way or bad way especially if you were young when you saw it first. I'll never get over seeing The Exorcist when I was young!! Yikes!!

    always loved this movie

    my favorite part was when she landed in munchkin land and opened the door and suddenly it all came alive in bright colors.
    I have watched it often with my kids.

    I read that before the movie was shown at the theatre, some people wanted to delete the Somewhere Over the Rainbow scene.

    According to books I’ve read, that’s true. They felt it slowed the film down, and one exec said, “Why is she singing in a barnyard??”

    The sequence was directed by King Vidor, who worked on the film for a few days during a transition to a new director.

    Every time I see that, a thrill runs up my spine, her voice is so beautiful.

    When Dorothy sings Somewhere Over the Rainbow, she has the hope that there is grandeur beyond Kansas.
