Judy Garland is Dorothy in this classic, Technicolour, family musical based on the book by L. Frank Baum. Critic Roger Ebert says of the film: “It has a wonderful surface of comedy and music, special effects and excitement, but we still watch it decades later because its underlying story penetrates straight to the deepest insecurities of childhood, stirs them and then reassures them.” Winner of two Oscars for the film’s music, The Wizard of Oz was also Palme d’Or nominated at Cannes 1939.
