297 - The Wizard of Oz: From Fairytale to Hollywood Nightmare



The Wizard of Oz (1939) is an all time family classic, but its filming was a pretty awful time for the cast and crew! In this episode we go back to the origins of L Frank Baum's story (1900), talk about the original stage production (1902) and go through the cursed 1939 production before discussing how the film became a classic.
