The Wizard of Oz~ 70 Years!

I'm so excited! "The Wizard of Oz" in High-Definition for the first time. In theaters, one night only, Wednesday September 23rd at 7pm in select theaters nationwide. Includes outtakes, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. Plus "To Oz: The Making of a Classic".

After not seeing it for years, I watched this, one of my favorite movies, under the stars this summer with my sister and my niece who had just flown in from Paris (nephew opted for NCIS at home with 'The Ed'). There we were, cozied up in our lawn chairs under blankets, my 'tween' niece tucked deeply into a sleeping bag. We'd had dinner, ice cream, made our toitie stops and were all ready when it started. Twenty minutes into the film I looked on either side of me to see how they were enjoying it only to find both family members sound asleep. Even the Wicked Witch of the West cannot keep jet-lagged eyes from inspecting their insides.

Even though I have just watched it, you can bet I'll be at the theater to see the rare outtakes and footage and watch the Scarecrow dance in Hi-Def on the big screen.

To Oz? To Oz!

Don't hate me, but I can't stand this movie. Does it make me unAmerican or inhumane? Which is it?
