''The Wizard of Oz'' turns 75 today

Only three films were ever finer. But none of them were released before 1960.

Re: ''The Wizard of Oz'' turns 75 today

An all-time classic and one of my favorites, for sure. As it became a television staple, the '39 movie achieved a level of cultural pervasiveness that is virtually unmatched. So prevalent, in fact, that we're almost not conscious of its influence any more, its just fundamental background. But if you stop and take notice of how often in normal life you hear stuff like "not in Kansas any more," "if I only had a brain," "the man behind the curtain" and so on, it's pretty amazing.

I got the 75th anniversary BD a while back, and it's really nice.

I was watching it Monday.

Scarecrow: How can I ever thank you enough?
Wizard: Well, you can't.

What makes this musical especially different is that two-thirds or so in, it stops being a musical. (Possibly as plot events were getting majorly serious). After ''King of the Forest,'' it became straight drama. (I don't consider the soldiers' ''Oh-EE-oh'' a true song or number.)
