bright packaging. She sees art, fun, and fashion!

years before. Dylan's parents screened Willy

fanciful imagery, visions of sugar plums began to dance in her head
and they've never stopped.

Margaret Pellegrini would often recount one of her favorite memories
of Judy Garland during this time. MGM deemed Judy Garland a big
enough star to warrant her very own trailer. The Munchkins presented
it to the thrilled young star and she in turn had a surprise for
them. It would have been quite a feat to shop for 125 individual
gifts so Judy Garland bestowed them with a huge box of candy while
proclaiming "Sweets for the Sweets!" She then very
graciously autographed photos for anyone that requested one. Many
Munchkins kept this treasured memento their whole lives.

A celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie musical, this new book The Wizard of Oz offers a rare glimpse into the creation of the classic film, its creator L. Frank Baum, the Academy Award-winning score, the leading lady, and the Oz phenomenon that continues to captivate the world.
Although Oz creator L. Frank Baum died twenty years prior to the release of MGM's celebrated film, his fascinating career and story, as told in this new book, will surprise even the most devoted Oz fans. Prior to MGM's 1939 release of the movie, Baum's book was featured as a Broadway musical, with songs by the justifiably forgotten Fred R. Hamlin, and two bizarre silent movies. The enduring appeal and lasting influence of The Wizard of Oz are discussed in a special chapterby creator's great-grandson Roger Baum.
The Wizard of Oz will lead the reader down the proverbial yellow brick road to discover:
The seven flawless decisions MGM made to adapt Baum's sprawling children's book into a movie musical.
The groundbreaking moviemaking techniques, MGM's second full-length Technicolor film.
The surprising story behind Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg's superlative score, which includes "Over the Rainbow," considered the greatest movie song of all time.
How Judy Garland won "Dorothy," her most enduring role, after 20th Century Fox refused to loan Shirley Temple to MGM.
The birth of film's greatest canine star, Cairn Terrier, Terry, as Dorothy's little dog "Toto".
The many everyday Oz expressions that come from the most oft-quoted movie of all time
How the Wicked Witch of the West (renamed her Elphaba after Oz creator's initials) was remade "for good" in Broadway's Oz prequel Wicked.
This celebration of the iconic film is a must-have for all Wizard of Oz lovers.
