L. Frank Baum's most cherished story in 1900 introduced Dorothy Gale. She quickly became a favorite character everywhere in America from that day forward.
Dorothy gained world recognition in 1939, when portrayed byJudy Garland, in the MGM film "The Wizard of OZ.". Besides the introduction of the movie, the book still reigns and has been published every year as its original version.
While many films from the past are somewhat shelved, the next generation, gets to experience this eternal classic. It turns out to be one of the top selling DVD's and is reported to be the most viewed film ever made.
Each generation has come to adore this movie and its annual showing on TV still makes it one of the highest rated nights each year.
The story has also transformed from a movie to an Off-Broadway and then a Broadway show in 1975 simply titled "The Wiz."
This adaptation involved Dorothy to be in the midst of a modern inner city. Stephanie Mills starred as Dorothy in the theatrical musical. "The Wiz," hit the screens as a movie starring Diana Ross in 1978.
Many treasure the entertainment, story of this legendary film, its message and its legacy for future generations, both as a book and film. It is timeless.
