      beautiful and simple

      The 1939 film is really too old. The special effects, costumes, and filming methods can't be compared to the present, but after watching it, the emotion will not end for a long time. Simple and warm. Everyone is not great, and every character is full of flaws. They all expect powerful magicians to fulfill their wishes. They thought they would get it without paying too much. However, the magician requires them to go through experience to realize their wishes. Since they are not very good, we...

      happy fairy tale

      The 1939 film was in color. Although many special effects are particularly low-level, in that era, it was very good to be able to restore the scene of the book to reality. These five-cent special effects that we think are 50 cents, I still find it quite amusing to watch. For example, red shoes will emit yellow light, and the yellow light really looks like graffiti. The acting skills of the actors are also exaggerated. But this kind of comedy might just have that effect. When we were young,...

      How it feels to read fairy tales when you grow up

      I didn't read the book "The Wizard of Oz" when I was a child, but I also read a lot of fairy tales. Watching this movie is like going back to the time of watching a fairy tale, obviously feeling similar moods and emotions. A feeling of nostalgia.

      But the perspective of reading fairy tales when you grow up is not the same as when you were a child. It’s okay to keep your brain blank and follow the movie. When you think about it after the end, after thinking about it, some things will...

      Wizard of Oz

      The correct translation of The Wizard of Oz is as above.
      This is a strange story.
      It looks like a fairy tale, but there is a strange sadness to it.
      First, Dorothy is an orphan, living with an aunt and uncle.
      At the end of the film, Dorothy says: There is no place like home.
      I believe this is the theme of the story.
      Unlike ordinary adventure stories, the end of the story vigorously praises the warmth of home - and this is not her real home.
      The theme song over...

      Recommended to read novels


      The shadow of childhood, "The Wizard of Oz" occupies a key memory. This is a set of books that I have read many times. After watching the movie tonight, I want to relive the rich imagination given by the novel.

      There is a girl named Dorothy (a good name), who was blown into OZ Wonderland by a tornado, where she met the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion, and started a magical adventure after another. It was popular back then, just like "Harry Potter" a few years...

      75 years later, it is still charming. No matter how remakes and special effects are improved in the future, Judy Garland's singing voice that fits so well can't be replicated. Today, I learned that "Over the Rainbow" was originally from the movie "The Wizard of...

      It was pretty good back then, but it's too easy to watch the plot now. But the set, the makeup is not to say - especially the scarecrow makeup; that is, the lion played by people is too low, and Dorothy is too stupid, and it is not as good as a dog. Oh, I suddenly connected with the wizard Oates I watched before. It must be that I didn't watch it in high-definition enough. In fact, Oates is pretty...

      I watched it with my daughter in a drowsy state. In fact, it was a 39-year-old film that was very good, but it was limited by technology. Without CG, it all depended on makeup, so it looked like a children's stage play, but my daughter was still very happy watching it. enough. ps: After reading it, I found that it is very different from the 13-year-old new version of "The Wizard of the Devil"! The old version is still basically in line with the original, the new version has changed the...

      Super brilliant supporting roles, each of which is unforgettable, a scarecrow who wants a brain, a tin man who asks for a heart, and the most girly lion in the world. When the last three friends showed up at Dorothy's bedside and asked "remember me? your old pal?" I burst into tears for no apparent...

    Character Selection

    Ray Bolger was supposed to play the Tinkerman at first, but he insisted on playing the Scarecrow because his idol Fred Stone played the Scarecrow on the stage in 1902, and Buddy Ebson was the first person to play the Scarecrow. Had to switch, but Ebson had an allergic reaction to the aluminum powder used by the Xipi people and had to give up the performance; later, the role of the Xipi people was replaced by Jack Haley.
    Originally, the...

    • The Cowardly Lion: [getting a panic attack walking into the Wizard's foyer] Wait a minute, fellas. I was just thinking. I really don't want to see the Wizard this much. I'd better wait for you outside.

      The Scarecrow: What's the matter?

      The Tin Man: Oh, he's just s-scared again.

      Dorothy: Don't you know the Wizard's going to give you some courage?

      The Cowardly Lion: I'd be too scared to ask him for it.

      [sobs]

      Dorothy: Well then, we'll ask him for you.

      The Cowardly Lion: I'd sooner wait outside.

      Dorothy: Why? Why?

      The Cowardly Lion: Because I'm still *scared*.

    • The Wicked Witch of the West: Helping the little lady along are you, my fine gentlemen? Well stay away from her!

      The Wicked Witch of the West: Or I'll stuff a mattress with you!

      [to Tin Man]

      The Wicked Witch of the West: And you! I'll use you for a beehive. Here Scarecrow, wanna play ball?

      [throws a ball of fire at Scarecrow who yelps and jumps back; Tin Man smothers it with his funnel hat]

    • The Wizard of Oz: You are talking to a man who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe. I was petrified.
