A Moment in Time

Happy 70th Birthday Wizard of Oz!

The fully restored DVD was released today in honor of it's milestone.

It surely has made a place in everyone's heart!

Has anyone ever seen The Return to Oz?

Of course it doesn't compare to the original. As a child, it scared the living day lights out of me. But there was something about it, that was intriguing.

There's no place like home...
there's no place like home...
there's no place like home.


  1. One of my favourite films....and happily my daughter now loves it too.....just a gorgeous film....I can't listen to Judy Garland singing "Over the Rainbow" without getting a lump in my throat!

    Lovely post :)

  2. Love the Wizard of Oz. I almost bought the DVD today while I was out. I remember watching it with my great grandparents and now my boys watch it with theirs. What a great movie!

  3. When I was little, they used to show it on television once a year..(now I am dating myself....haha...) It was a big event in my house, we so loved that movie!!! I adore it to this day....Wonderful movie...I am going to have to watch it again soon! Thanks for the reminder!

  4. Ooooohhh!!! So THAT's why every channel played it this past weekend. Awww. It took me years to realize that the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion were the workers in the beginning. Love this movie. 70 years? geez.

    I never caught The Return of Oz. All I can think is that it's the crazy girl from The Craft little. =)

    Thanks hun for telling about the movie The Jane Austen book club! I'll see if my library has it & watch it! Thanks again for the postcard! xoxo

  5. Oh sweet Dorothy and those pretty little red shoes...love it! And now I need to get the restored version for my little crumb.

  6. Never ever heard of return to oz...does look quite creepy.
    Love wizard of oz though!

  7. Oh wow, no have not seen the return. Hey I'm just in love with Dewey, he talks to me when I'm over here ... I'm sure of it ;o

  8. OMG I used to be so in love with the Wizard of Oz! This post brings back so much great memories :)


  9. I love, love the Wizard of Oz! Those ruby slippers!

    I did see Return to Oz with Fairuza Balk...scared me too! Especially that creepy room with all the heads. Eek!

  10. One of the best movies ever! Oh, and the books are fabulous, too. I was scared out of my wits watching this as a kid, but I adored it just the same. Thanks for this lovely post. xoxo Gigi

  11. Delightful post....hard to believe this film is 70 years old. My dear granny is turning 79 in a couple of weeks, I'm going to ask her if she saw it as a youngster when it first came out (How awesome would that have been?!!!)

    Wishing you a marvelous start of October, sweet heart!

  12. Return to Oz is a very messed up sequel. It still kind of frightens me just thinking about it - although, I agree - it was full of intrigue. Thanks for the kind words on our blog!
