Seventy-five years ago, Dorothy Gale and her dog Toto were carried away by a wicked tornado to the magical technicolor land of Oz.

The 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz was not the first adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s 1889 story, but the MGM classic starring Judy Garland in the iconic role of Dorothy, mesmerized audiences with its use of technicolor, musical score, and special effects.
