Movies & TV

The Wizard of Oz (1939)

The 70th anniversary version on DVD is now available from Warner Brothers.

Muppet Wizard of Oz (2005)

This made-for-TV-movie features Queen Latifah and Quentin Tarantino, plus it's the Muppets and the Wizard of Oz. We should not need to say anything else.

The Wiz (1978)

This urban African-American reinterpretation of the story was both a critical failure and a box office failure at the time of release. Since then, though, it has continued to stand as an emblem of 1970s black film, and a popular and memorable musical to boot. It features Diana Ross as Dorothy and a young Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow. We challenge you to one-up that.

Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (2001)

This acclaimed TV documentary is based on Garland's daughter Lorna Luft's 1999 memoir.

Judy: Impressions of Garland (1967-2003)

This TV series about Judy Garland documents the ins and outs of the performer's hard personal life and glamorous career.
