    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    This wonderful romp of a movie looks magical on the big screen: colors are a picnic for the eyes, details loom so clearly you can practically touch them and there's a sense of the larger-than-life with a film that's already larger than life. show more

    Not only is it wonderfully entertaining, but the issues it addresses, and the way it presents them, are both universal and deeply personal. And therein lies The Wizard of Oz's true magic. show more

    The Wizard of Oz remains the weirdest, scariest, kookiest, most haunting and indelible kid-flick-that's-really-for-adults ever made in Hollywood. show more

    This is one vintage film that fully lives up to its classic status and should play with outstanding success to contemporary audiences of all ages. show more

    amazing but true, I did not know that over 1/2 of it was in color until I bought the video when I had a child, because we only had a black/white tv when I was a kid in the 50's

    How lucky are we to have a movie that continues to warm my heart as it did when I was a kid, and now my children. I could watch it over and over.

    I think Classic films never die out.I still enjoy hearing Glenda ask "are you a good witch or a bad witch'? An awesome childhood film to cherish and love.
