Wishing to return home, she begins to travel to the city of Oz where a great wizard lives. On her way she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who desperately needs courage. They all hope the all-mighty Wizard of Oz will help them, but they have to get to the Emerald City before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them.

Wonderful indeed

This is a fantastic and entertaining classic movie, especially for families. The message is that whatever it is you want for yourself, you have it within your self to acheive. Judy Garland's performance is world reknowned, the music is fun, and the charachters memorable. One side note: if you're planning on watching this with the sound off while listening to Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon"...don't bother. I think illegal substances are required for that to seem like a good idea.

OZ-SOME!

I was in my school's production of "OZ" and I played a Munchkin! I played the munchkin coroner! Originally, the Coroner was played by a man named Meinhardt Raabe.

Sensational

Great

The Wizard

I love this video.

oz

This was a great family movie. It's kind of old though but every one knows about this movie. My favorite character in this movie is the scarecrow.
