The Wizard of Oz (1939)


EPISODE # 56:  THE WIZARD OF OZ is a 1939 classic film beloved by children everywhere, but how does it hold up when you watch it as a grownup? For starters, the Wicked Witch of the West seems even MORE terrifying! James and Lara get into it with our “Audience of TWO”, Natalie Lipka and Wayne Frazier of the Hollywood Close-Up podcast. They also discuss the child star that MGM head Louis B. Mayer originally wanted to play Dorothy, who was set to play the Tin Man before the character’s makeup made him sick, why director Victor Fleming had to leave the project, and so much more in an episode that will take you Over the Rainbow.
