I first remembering seeing the Wizard Of Oz when I was a child. We waited all year to watch it on TV each autumn. Fabulous idea of changing the movie from black and white to color midway through. What a great and timeless movie!
Harry Earles (1902-1985) and his sisters, Gracie, Daisy and Tiny were part of the “The Doll Family,” a multitalented family of dwarf entertainers. Harry was also one of the Lollipop Guild in The Wizard of Oz.
The tornado in THE WIZARD OF OZ is still a wonderful special effect over 60 years later. Created with 35-foot-long muslin stocking, photographed with miniatures of a Kansas farm and fields. Amazing & creepy!
Dorothy performs Glinda the Good Witch's simple magic spell: all she has to do is click the heels of her magic shoes and repeat, "There's no place like home, there's no place like home..." From "The Wizard of Oz," 1939. http://www.markarcana.com
