Follow the yellow brick road! Young Dorothy lives on a farm in Kansas where a large tornado picks her house, and her dog up and deposits them in the Land of Oz where things are strange and beautiful, but Dorothy just wants to get back home. She's helped by the Good Fairy of the North, but she's also in trouble with the Wicked Witch of the West, who seeks revenge for the death of the Wicked Witch of the East, for which she blames Dorothy. While searching her way home via the fabled Wizard of Oz, she meets a Scarecrow (who needs a brain), a Tin Man (who needs a heart), and a cowardly lion (who needs courage). Although it had a troubled and difficult gestation and subsequent shoot (it went through a number of directors) it remains one of the most beloved fantasy films of all time.
