After 75 Years, 'The Wizard of Oz' Still Has Secrets to Tell
In case there was any doubt, "The Wizard of Oz: The Official 75th Anniversary Companion" confirms that no film has entered our pop-culture subconscious as deeply as that 1939 MGM classic. Even a quick glance at the just published book conjures up names and images (the Flying Monkeys, the Lollipop Guild, Auntie Em!) and one-liners from the movie that we can all recite in our sleep: "We're not in Kansas anymore," "I'll get you, my pretty â¦ and your little dog too!" "There's no place like home," ad infinitum. Only "Casablanca" can rival "Oz" for the number of quotable quotes.
