And people wonder why I'm warped.
(Oh, and I have to mention that the main character, Dorothy, has the same name as me -- this is what I grew up with -- "Dorothy, where's Toto", "Dorothy, been to Oz lately", Dorothy, where's the wicked witch", "Dorothy, you're not in Kansas anymore, or my all time personal favorite: "Dorothy, I've got a yellow brick road for you to follow." -- please all these response were from males -- how original!)
It is really one of my all time favorites now, and I must say, as terrified of the movie as I was when I was a child, I hesitated to let my daughter watch the movie. She begged and begged until I gave in. The whole time we were watching the movie, I kept saying "You know, it's only a movie" -- it was a mantra, until my daughter asked me to be quiet, I was ruining the movie for her. She then brought home this massive book of the Wizard of Oz and read it, and all the books that went with it. Kids, they do the darnedest things. She now tells me that the movie scared her too, but she couldn't tell I was right, that it was a scary movie. Ah, well, live and learn. It clearly was before it's time and now, has earned a place in my heart and my top movie of all time list. So, here's a clip of the movie trailer that is now seventy years old and one of my personal favorites:
BTW, I am wearing green today, so no pinches for me!!
Happy St. Patty's Day!! And may the luck of the Irish be with you!!
Besides, I love fairies and fairies and leprechauns are the most active today, so everyone remember to be kind to the wee creatures, or there just might be a trick in it for you!
P.S. Don't forget to stop by Barbara's place to get in on the giveaway of Samantha Sommersby's Forbidden: The Temptation, the contest ends Friday, so hurry on over.
