group.jpgThe Novel or rather children’s book was written by L. Frank Baum and it was Illustrated by W.W.Denslow.  The original name is “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and it was published by George M. Hill Company in Chicago in 1900 and has been reprinted time and again since.  The author Baum dedicated the book “to my good friend & comrade, My Wife,” Maud Gage Baum.  The first print was for 35,000 copies and records show 21,000 were sold through 1900.

The movie is what I remember as a kid, the name of the movie was shortened a bit to “the Wizard of Oz.”  The screenplay was written by Noel Langley and it was directed by Victor Fleming.  Everybody knows that Judy Garland as Dorothy was the main star but it also stared Frank Morgan as the Wizard, Ray Bolger as the Scarecrow, Jack Haley as the Tin Man, Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion, it also stared Billie Burke, and Margaret Hamilton.  Most of you know the story, an American musical with Dorothy finding her way home with the help of some strange friends, running from some even strangeremrald-city.jpg enemies and going through some pretty wild circumstances.  The Wizard of Oz premiered at the Strand Theatre  in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin on August 12, 1939 and Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on this day August 15, 1939.  It ranks among the top ten best movies of all time, for good reason in my opinion.  The Wizard of Oz Warner Bros.
