73 years ago today, The Wizard of Oz premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theater & homosexuals have never been the same.
“Mommy, Mommy…please let me stay up & watch The Wizard of Oz, please, please! I promise to be good!”… from 1956 to 1998 The Wizard of Oz was an annual television tradition at my house & all over the USA. Because of these broadcasts, it has become one of the most famous films ever made. The Library of Congress names The Wizard of Oz as the most-watched film in history. It is often ranked among the top 10 best movies of all-time in most critics' & popular polls, it certainly is in mine.
The Wizard Of Oz has provided enduring quotes for our popular cultural consciousness. Its signature song, Over the Rainbow, sung by Judy Garland, has been voted the greatest movie song of all time by the American Film Institute.
