Wizard of Oz
File under : a classic, a masterpiece, but growing up with 7 sisters ?
I never need to see it again . Ever.
You don't like Dorothy?
Nice! I must have missed that one. To the googles!
I’ve always thought a remake would be cool if the scenes in Oz were shot in 3D - and the scenes set in Kansas were two dimensional. Kind of like the color v. black and white of the original. But... I really can’t imagine a remake being as good as the original.
I’ve never watched it with the Pink Floyd album playing, but I’ll get around to that some day.
On Wisconsin Public Radio i just heard an interview with the author of "Finding Dorothy" - a historical novel about Maude Baum, Frank's wife. It sounded interesting and is now on my reading list.
Best ones are by David Shipman and Gerald Clarke. I can't remember which I liked better.
Gaylyn Studler wrote some observations about Shirley Temple in 'Precocious Charms' which could lead one to believe that a Wizard of Oz with her could have been an interesting psychosexual adventure. But she was a hot property at Fox and probably would have bust the budget anyway. They paid Judy peanut. She made more than Toto the dog but she was low man on the pay totem.
Does anyone remember Judy Garland's variety show on television? It was actually pretty cool, but I don't think it lasted very long.
Judy and Liza:
It lasted 26 episodes from 1963-64. If you were a fan, the opening of the first show was electric. Several years ago Sid Luft (I think) arranged for a DVD release of all the shows which were in fantastic condition.
There was a fella on TCM telling a story. His parent(s) was an actor and Judy and many others would visit and they would stay up all night singing and dancing and playing.
Now I know how she did it.
But please, please don't re-make this movie. I wish Hollywood could do more original plots instead of just adding cgi to an old idea. And stuff like that.
Do I need matching shoes for my Duo Jet?
Why yes, you do!
