You want amazing? Here's an anecdote from Harmetz' book about the making of the movie: When the wardrobe department was looking for a coat for Frank Morgan (Prof. Marvel / The Wizard), it decided it wanted one that looked like it had once been elegant but had since "gone to seed." They visited a second-hand store and purchased an entire rack of coats, from which Morgan, the head of the wardrobe department and director Victor Fleming chose one they felt gave off the perfect appearance of "shabby gentility." One day, while he was on set in the coat, Morgan idly turned out one of the pockets and discovered a label indicating that the coat had been made for L. Frank Baum. Mary Mayer, a unit publicist for the film, contacted the tailor and Baum's widow, who both verified that the coat had at one time been owned by the author of the original "Wizard of Oz" books. After the filming was completed, the coat was presented to Mrs. Baum.

I vividly remember the first time I watched this as a kid. That close-up of Margaret Hamilton's green face really creeped me out!

No one had color TV when I was a kid, so I had no idea her face was green until I saw it years later in color, and yes, it was really creepy.

Never heard that about Dark Side of the Moon. Can't imagine 'Money' being played over Wizard of Oz. Well I can, and I don't think it works. Also, matching a 43 minute record to a 101 minute film is never going to be easy.

You should check it out. There is a youtube video of it synced up. Some people say you can restart the album after it ends, but it doesn't really work the second time around. It wasn't as good as I remembered it when I saw the youtube video, but the first time I saw it I was umm... in an altered state.

I just wanted to add the book was written as a political satire with Dorothy's shoes being sliver- to represent the miners. The lion was William Jennings Bryant and they were going to Washington to protest. Then it became a hit as a children's book. Fun?
+1

I just read up on this. The satire angle appears to be a fairly popular interpretation among scholars, but it is not an undisputed fact that Baum intended the work as a satire, or that the lion is Jennings Bryan. Seems Baum himself never acknowledged those claims.
