The Wizard of Oz is one of the most beloved classics of our time. It was originally a children’s novel written by L. Frank Baum. But what people remember most is the film, starring Judy Garland.
Even though the film was released 78 years ago (yep, it came out in 1939) it still manages to capture our imaginations.
It instills in us a sense of wonderment and teaches us about friendship and courage. It also teaches us about adventure, but that sometimes there’s just no place like home.
