The Wizard of Oz
Judy Garland dons her iconic ruby slippers to magical effect in this definitive 1939 MGM musical, based on the novel by L Frank Baum, which won two Oscars but lost the Best Picture statuette to Gone With The Wind. She plays Dorothy, swept off to the land of Oz from her beloved Kansas, where she must seek the help of the wizard to return home with her trusty canine sidekick Toto. The luminous leading lady sings Somewhere Over The Rainbow as her magical pals - The Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), The Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) and The Tin Man (Jack Haley) - follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City and their destiny.
