"We're Not In Kansas Anymore."

We click our heels in anticipation. There's no place like home and no movie like this one. From generation to generation, The Wizard Of Oz brings us together - kids, grown-ups, families, friends. The dazzling land of Oz, a dream-come--true world of enchanted forests, dancing scarecrows and singing lions, wraps us in its magic with one great song-filled adventure after another.

Based on L. Frank Baum's treasured book series, The Wizard Of Oz was judged the best family film of all time by American Film Institute. And this never-before-seen restoration looks and sounds better than ever. We invite you to embark for the Emerald City on the most famous road in movie history. Dorothy (Judy Garland), Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), Tin Woodman (Jack Haley) and Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) await you on the Yellow Brick Road and "Over the Rainbow."

I've got this special edition, and it is indeed special, it provides some amazing insights that may mean you can't watch the movie quite the same way ever again, so be warned, 1930s Hollywood sounds like a scary place to work as an actor!

To me watching this movie though, this is Christmas as a child.

Of course, the hardest part of owning this movie is having to tell your parents...

 Got to be one of the best films ever

Considering the year this was made, this film is truly amazing. I know people as children who were scared by the witch and even today can not watch the film, what a shame because for me this is a top 5 film of all time.

A must for anyones DVD collection.

 A cult classic

1939, a revolution in its own right! The Wizard of Oz became the first ever technicolor film. Amazing scenes with gobsmacking colours amazed viewers then and still nearer 70 years later. The great Judy Garland takes us through a fairy tale world of excitement and ore as Victor Fleming expressed one of the first ever flash back sequences to create the wonderful world of Oz. A true family classic enjoyable im sure for decades to come.
