No questions — 10 scores. People, without prejudice related to old movies and good stories, just not can not like it!

This is a very simple story full of unusual characters. It is possible to infinity to compare this film with a later one will find in the cons, look for punctures and dies (which I didn't notice...). However, it is not all t matter because it was first its kind, and remains so until now. "The wizard of Oz" literally pilfered by episodes later films, and continue to do so far. Many Directors and writers inspired to the feat of this story. No one movie is not have made such a huge contribution to the development of cinema.

The film is very well shot, the picture looks very nice. The magic looks very natural, thanks to the ingenuity of the crew. The actors are excellent, giving the entire the soul of the film-making process (what can be said about our contemporaries).

And end — music! Excellent voice and beautiful motifs, which became a worldwide classic.

It's an American classic. Remember that as a child, the film made on me very strong impression, after which my parents bought me books translation-adaptation Volkova about the Wizard of oz. In the film is very like the atmosphere. Now I realize the background was set, but you ignore that kind of stuff. I was very impressed by the costumes of the characters and clear skin Dorothy.

Typical American movie, with a desire to surprise and to impress. I think if we want to instill in our children a good taste for the West, you need to start with these films. To the same not just a movie and a musical. The musical children's movie is not can remain indifferent. I would have revised it now.

This phrase, said on the West became winged. I she is remembered for multiple citations in other works, and Naumovska books read much later Volkovskaya favorite of the series, seems pretentious, illogical and evil — more children's stories often somehow perversely evil (wolves, by the way, the exception). What are the interchangeable heads Princess Langwidere of the second book of Baum — the gods, this nasty piece of work haunted me in adolescent nightmares, ugh. The only thing that I have Baum like — this is the main character. Dorothy is much livelier and more interesting our ally.

The idea to see this movie has prompted me to Stephen king, who quoted it in full in his "the Dark tower". What well, I have not regretted.

The beginning of the movie I loved it. Shooting on any particular generic film, such a cosy, warm colour. The staff are so funny, dear aunt, Dorothy herself (seen, of course, that the actress has already pretty years... well, Dorothy pretty, seventeen — but it is perceived as a theatrical Convention). Cute circus, unobtrusively evoking the escaped the girl's conscience. Nasty lady, who decided to euthanize the dog, which was bitten by... a very sad moment, really.

And then — so... natural tornado, well, a little less natural flight (but all the theatre, theater, credibility and not necessary), and — colour! For the audience of the time color in General, probably, was a miracle, but I pleasantly surprised.

Alas, not everything was rosy... scared me the local Munchkins, I'm sorry, Munchkin. The children, dressed in Oldies — then a breath of cold malice Baum. And Glinda just horrified — some old prude. In the film is busy in the crowd a bunch of young Actresses who... the aunt? And played very sugary.

Negative impressions quickly brightened Scarecrow. In my opinion, the Bolger played its just amazing, I he really liked it, and makeup it is also uplifting. The woodcutter, although the makeup of its too bad, I liked it less — first, it why not the brave and second, he played not good, how should have, and sentimental and mannered guy, different things. Leo again brought me back in a good mood. Surprisingly good eyes Berta Lara, such a touching came the beast, and the cowardice he somehow forgive immediately. Their costumes again return to the theatre as that Bolger, Lahr and Haley play not only these magical characters, but and — in the real world — workers the farm.

Evil the witch of the West, local Gingema (Oh, I can't Association with Volkov, habit), played a woman with a totally masculine face. I first, even thought not man if it plays when Hamilton was still as her a real double — the evil lady on the bike. Lovely shade of the face forces us to accept the Wicked Witch as troliu (or who there her guard), but very chic villain, which her think it I don't seen. The villain as the villain. But I realized a parody of jackass in the second "Shrek", squirming under the rain.

The wizard generally creepy ham. Then he said that very good, well, well.

In General, to the end of the film slowed down a little. Junk that Oz lectured heroes instead of brains, heart and courage, the phenomenon Glinda that say inconclusive about the reasons why she not to tell Dorothy as soon as to come home... all it somewhat spoiled the ending.

But only a few. In General — very nice the film came out.
