    Default Totally OT: The Wizard Of Oz

    Anyone watching The Wizard Of Oz tonight?

    I’ve had the videotape and now have the DVD, but I can never resist
    watching a broadcast of it. It’s on TNT right now, at least in my time
    zone.

    The flying monkeys scared the crap out of me when I was a little kid, but I
    still watched every chance I got.

    My dad was an avid collector of fine books, and over a period of years
    found first editions of all of the Oz books that he gave me as gifts. I
    still have the complete collection.

    I was lucky enough to meet Margaret Hamilton at The Cleveland Playhouse
    when she performed in a production of Night Must Fall in 1978, when she was
    76. As members of The Playhouse Club, we attended a late supper at the
    club in her honor. She was witty, charming, and gracious…and very tiny.

    My first live encounter with Judy Garland was at her Carnegie Hall concert
    in 1961 when I was 16. I was fortunate to see her in six other live
    performances up until the year before her death in 1969. Garland loved to
    invite small groups of fans to her dressing room after performances, and I
    made it there twice. She was one of the funniest people I ever met.

    Anyway, I still think the “Wizard” will eternally be one of the most
    charming films of its type of all time.

    Absolutely! And the trivia that goes with it makes it even more amazing.

    I actually wrote my mom and sisters when it came on and reflected on how
    the movie makes me feel like I am young again and "home" with them -- it
    was one of those special rituals whenever it came on T.V. and we stayed
    fixed from beginning to end.

    I was just reading up about Terry and her trainer, Carl Spitz. Her name
    was permanently changed to Toto after that movie. She even broke her
    foot during the filming!

    You’re so right. There is a very interesting book you might enjoy, “The
    Making of The Wizard Of Oz”, by Aljean Harmetz. I pick up my copy every
    now and again to enjoy more of the history.

    > I actually wrote my mom and sisters when it came on and reflected on how

    Lin, that’s exactly how it makes me feel…young again and “home” with my
    family. It simply erases many decades from my life for a while.

    > I was just reading up about Terry and her trainer, Carl Spitz. Her name

    She was a wonderful little dog! The only dog I ever owned was a Cairn
    terrier, aptly named Toto. I never knew about Toto’s previous name until I
    read about it many years later.

    > Dorothy to the Scarecrow: I think I'm going to miss you most of all.
    > (That part ALWAYS makes me cry).


    I’m a fool for crying at movies and songs. That scene always draws a tear,
    but early in the film when Dorothy sings Over the Rainbow has me crying all
    the way through it.

    Probably so. It's sad that many kids who see the movie for the first time
    are bored by it and think it "sucks" because it has no slick CGI stuff and
    swashbuckling characters hacking people to death with magic swords and
    sultry vixens with huge boobs leeping off skyscrapers only to land on their
    two feet totally unscathed 800 feet below. We've destroyed kid's
    imagination.

    My curmudgeonly doctor lives in a posh mansion here in town that was built
    by the guy who wrote the original screenplay for the WOO. It has genuine
    Tiffany glass windows and 60 year old topiaries 20 feet tall and a carriage
    house bigger than most homes. I'm told the house is a crowning monument to
    Greene and Greene architecture even better than the Gamble House in Pasadena
    though smaller.

    A little triva: the producers almost panned the song, Over the Rainbow.
    They thought it was just too corny. Buddy Ebsen was the original Tin
    Woodman but he almost died during the filiming after having a toxic reaction
    to his lead based makeup.

    I saw his biography on A&E a year or two ago and he was talking about
    his role in the Wizard had ended because of the reaction. He said
    someone from the studio was there bugging the doctors wanting to know
    if Mr. Ebsen would be well enough to return to the studio that day?
    He said he ended up being in the hospital for six weeks because of the
    makeup.

    I totally agree. Technology and “techie” parents have absolutely ruined
    the innocence and simplicity of childhood for most children.

    I think that would have been Noel Langley’s home. I would really love to
    see it. Greene & Greene were fabulous architects of the period and style.

    A little more trivia: There were other lyrics to Over the Rainbow that
    were nixed by the producers, as they felt it made the song too long and
    that they were too maudlin. The wicked witch (Margaret Hamilton) was badly
    burned when she “disappeared” through the trap door in the land of the
    Munchkins scene. The ruby slippers were originally to be silver. Glenda
    the Good Witch (Billie Burke) was married to Florenz Ziegfeld. The cast of
    Munchkins was the largest assemblage of “little people” ever used in a
    film. There’s so much more…

    I’m not sure Lin would want that in *her* Netflix queue. Maybe you better
    put it in yours.

    Your message brought back memories. I went to graduate school at Case
    Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and I spent many happy hours at the
    Cleveland Playhouse. I also recall my first visit to Las Vegas in the
    mid-1960s. At that time, rooms and shows were very inexpensive because
    Casinos made the real money on gambling. One evening, my parents gave us a
    choice of two shows. One was Elvis, and we decided not to go to that one.
    Most people today think we made an unfortunate choice, but I still think we
    made the right choice -- we opted to see Judy Garland! Can you imagine
    having choices like that for live entertainment, and for very little money?
    We sat very close to the front (a dinner theater, yet!), and Judy reached
    down and shook some of our hands.

    I hope you can, Jill, sooner rather than later. I know you’re in a very
    trying situation right now, and that it’s lasted far longer than you ever
    thought it would.

    My kids now techie teenagers still sit and watch it with me every year. We
    have about 6 must see movies during October. One of them being "The Wizard
    of Oz." It's family movie night with all the trimmings and we have a good
    time every year.

    Mary, I’m glad it brought back fond memories. I spent most of my life in
    the Cleveland area. I began going to The Cleveland Playhouse as a child,
    and became a member of The Playhouse Club in my early 20s. There were many
    great performances there. The resident cast was fabulous, and they also
    drew many famous stars for some primary roles. Two one-person shows that
    were memorable were “Vincent” with Leonard Nimoy and “Gertrude Stein
    Gertrude Stein Gertrude Stein” with Pat Carroll.

    I was a great fan of the early Elvis Presley in his pre-Army years,
    especially because my parents were originally from his birthplace, Tupelo,
    MS, and we lived in Memphis at the same time he did, when he still lived in
    a tract house, before he bought the estate he renamed Graceland. My dad
    was an a/c engineer and was called to his house to design a cooling system
    for some room additions. I was lucky to go with him, although Elvis wasn’t
    at home. I did meet his parents.

    I would have made the same choice you did in Las Vegas. To see Judy
    Garland live in concert is like no other experience. She truly loved her
    audiences, and really gave everything she had to them. As a veteran of
    many, many Broadway shows, I still treasure her as the single outstanding
    artist I ever saw perform in New York. The audience at her Carnegie Hall
    concert in ’61 was like one huge breathing entity.

    In most cases, I think it's the intelligent and sensitive parent who guides
    their child toward things of value and enrichment. I would expect that of
    you, Miche, and many other people I know. Yet there are certainly many who
    simply don't qualify. It's pretty obvious when you watch parent and child
    interact in public.

    When *I* was a wee child it was shown in the spring, which was of course
    TORNADO SEASON. Scared the hell out of me!

    'the wizard of oz' would have been a pretty good movie if they had left out
    the dimbulb from kansas.
