A friend sent me the link for this documentary made in 1989. It re-surfaced in 2014 at the 75th anniversary of the film. It has been re-published on YouTube into four segments, each between 8-13 minutes, which I am going to post over the next few weeks. Each segment is quite entertaining and includes interviews with various actors and film makers still alive at the time.


Angela Lansbury is the narrator. This first one, for instance, explains the enchantment of the film, since the books had been children favorites for many years by then. Also, there are musical numbers shown which explained why they didn’t make the final cut.

 

 

This dance number, starring Ray Bolger, was cut from The Wizard of Oz prior to release in 1939. Wonderful choreography with interesting special effects for its time. I especially enjoy the Scarecrow flying into the cornfield!

Gale Sondergaard was an Academy Award winning actress who tested for the part of wicked witch. But once stripped of the “glam” she declined the roll with “no regrets.” Only good witches are pretty, after all. Margaret Hamilton explains the testing for the witches.

  

Disney’s Sleeping Beauty success propelled MGM to look for projects that could compete with the new genre of full length animation. Although a very expensive film to make, the impact on every generation and movie making since then is unmatched. Even now, with the use of technology, film students have learned much through the trial and errors that came before them.

What are your impressions?

      First, I researched blog101 for my initial information; my subject, my mission and so on. Really do your homework! Research.
      Secondly, I took a WordPress class to build my platform theme & establish my website with a host
      Lastly, my nephew, a web designer, helped me launch it with a logo, onto Facebook, and administrative specifics per his advise.
      Good luck. One thing blog101 said was to go with the flow. My theme morphed from my initial ideas, because the timing was spot on.
