What is the movie The Wizard of Oz about?
One of the most iconic films ever made, “The Wizard of Oz” is an adaptation of the popular novel “The wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. The film tells the story of a little girl called Dorothy (Judy Garland) living on a Kansas farm in the early 20th century. Dorothy is mortal enemies with her neighbor Almira Gulch, who gets sheriff’s approval to get rid of Dorothy’s dog Toto for biting her on the leg. Dorothy and Toto run away from home to escape Miss Gulch, and they eventually cross paths with Professor Marvel, a shady fortune teller who uses a mind trick to convince Dorothy to go back home. Upon Dorothy’s arrival to the farm a great tornado occurs, and, unable to escape, Dorothy and the entire farm house get caught in the whirlwind. Once the tornado settles, Dorothy finds herself transported to Munchkin Land, where she has to flee from the Wicked Witch of the West, who wants vengeance after Dorothy’s house landed on her sister and killed her. Dorothy needs to flee to Emerald City where the wizard of Oz might help her go back home. On her voyage she is joined by a scarecrow in search of a brain, a tin man in search of a heart, and a lion in search of courage. Her journey concludes with the final showdown with the Wicked Witch of the West, and discovering that Wizard of Oz has a secret. Dorothy finally claps her magic slippers and repeats “there’s no place like home” three times, ad she awakes in her bad back in Kansas, surrounded by her family and friends.

You know what i love this movie! And it has a bunch of phrases that become very popular and a lot of wise people throughout the entire world are using them! The book by Baum i read a long time ago when i was a child, though later i read another version of it, written by another author. But still only after i saw the movie that was filmed a long time ago with Judy Garland i can say that i finally got a perfect image of Dorothy in my head, before watching the movie i didn’t had it that clear in my head! And it is not about the face, but because in this movie everything was exactly how i imagined it to be when i was small. A lot of people are criticizing this movie and the book for the cruelty in it, because they think that movies for children should be bright and sweet. As about me i think that it is very useful for children to know that there is something else in the world beside good and bad things. And i believe they should get to know about it in a fairy tale-real story form. That’s pretty much all i think about it!

The subject line of this movie is very well known to me since my childhood as i read it a lot in those times! But i can say that it was very interesting for me to watch it, and at the same time i was very curious to watch it with my children! It is one of the kindest musical i have ever seen in my life, and it is about the adventures of a little girl Dorothy and her dog Toto which cannot leave any person indifferent! The “Wizard of the Oz” was filmed a long time ago and it gives even more charm to this movie, as it gives some more spice to it! The special effects nevertheless are very qualitative in it, and i can surely say that watching it is a pure pleasure! There are a lot of great songs in it that made my mood much better! Wonderful dances and the whole atmosphere of it was filled with bright and sincere kindness- i think it is a perfect option in order to watch it with children on the weekend time! And the song “Over the rainbow” is immortal and popular till the day of today!

Finally after finishing our semester at the university, me and my friend went to see the “Wizard of the Oz”. Frankly speaking, the book itself i read about ten years ago, that is why i didn’t really remember what will happen next in the musical.
But anyway i really loved it. The thing i am a bit sad about, is that the seats that i had were far away, but at the moment when the musical has started, even that didn’t matter for me, as i really felt myself like i was a part of a fairy tale. There were moments when i felt that i am a part of a show or illusion. That is why i recommend it to everyone, i am sure it will be interesting for both, adults and their little children. As about presents- mm i can say honestly that the box was a huge one, while the present in it was a very small and simple one. But what can i say, at least i enjoyed this present that i gave to both of us. I can’t wait till the time when i will have a child of my own to which i will be able to show this amazing story.

Fantastic tale about a Kansas farm girl who's spirited off to the wondrous land of Oz. The film still tingles with freshness and beauty. Garland is forever memorable as Dorothy Gale, the young girl and the supporting performances of Bolger, Lahr,Haley, Hamilton and Morgan are all stand out and will remain national treasures. The superb songs of E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen are still beautifully blended with the lovely photography, cinematography and art direction. Unforgettable!!!
