One of the most-beloved childrens/fantasy films of all time, M-G-M's 1939 adaptation of L. Frank Baum's 1900 children's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was taken on by the studio in 1938 after the massive success of Walt Disney's adaptation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. Harold Arlen and E. Y. "Yip" Harburg provided the songs, and Harburg did much to bring together the film's extraordinary libretto.
After a tornado hurls through Kansas, Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, are swept away from their home to the colorful and vibrant Land of Oz. In order to find their way back home, they must embark on a journey to the Emerald City, where the Wizard of Oz resides. On the way, they become accompanied by a Scarecrow who wants a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. They are hopeful that the Wizard will be able to fulfill their wishes, but not far behind them is the Wicked Witch of the West, who is out for revenge on Dorothy after she accidentally killed her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East
