1939 - The Wizard Of Oz

1939 - The Wizard Of Oz

1939 brings us the all-time classic The Wizard of Oz, our first movie that all four of us had seen previously. Based on a large series of novels, filmed in vibrant Technicolor, and starring Judy Garland in her best known role, Oz is widely considered to be the most seen movie of all time. Our conversation touches on dreams, tornadoes, on-set injuries, and weaponized slippers. We theorize on the origins of Rotten Tomatoes and an Oz baseball league, and cap it off with an end-of-decade trivia showdown for the ages.
