One of the most beloved movies of all time is celebrating its 75th anniversary today. A classic among classics, The Wizard of Oz has touched hearts, piqued imaginations, and brought families together for endless hours of entertainment throughout the years. It is definitely a film that I have enjoyed watching as a child and now enjoy watching with my own children, too.
When it was released during Hollywood’s golden year of 1939, The Wizard of Oz didn’t start out as the perennial classic it has since become. The film did respectable business, but it wasn’t until its debut on television that this family favorite saw its popularity soar. And of course, almost 75 years later it’s still a heart-warming tale enjoyed by all ages and generations.
