About The Wizard of Oz:
Director Victor Fleming’s The Wizard of Oz is the winner of two Academy Awards (Best Score, Best Song – “Over the Rainbow”), and is an adaptation of the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.  Prior to the film, the book had already inspired a number of stage and screen adaptations, including a profitable Broadway musical and three silent films. Of course the 1939 MGM film is the most famous adaptation, beloved by generations of fans, and celebrated among film historians for its innovative special effects and revolutionary use of the then-new Technicolor.
