Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: The Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz (Victor Fleming, 1939, 102 mins)
We’re off to see the Wizard with Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) and her newfound friends as they face flying monkeys, a wicked witch, and quarrelsome talking trees, oh my! This MGM Golden Age classic features Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Billie Burke, Frank Morgan, and the great Margaret Hamilton, and it won Oscars for score and song (“Over the Rainbow”).
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
