Not since “Snow White” such a marvelous screen show!
It had to be star-crowded! It had to be painted with Technicolor’s rainbow! It had to be glorified with laughter and song. It had to have a record cost of 9,200 living actors! It had to be the most costly film ever made. It had to be all of these things — to be the greatest musical show miracle since “Snow White.” Watch the wonders whiz by — in a whiz of a show!
(Hope Star, Lebanon, Pennsylvania – September 14, 1939)
You’ll go into ecstasies over The Wizard of Oz!
