Wizard of Oz Book Review:

A celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie musical, this new book The Wizard of Oz offers a rare glimpse into the creation of the classic film, its creator L. Frank Baum, the Academy Award-winning score, the leading lady, and the Oz phenomenon that continues to captivate the world.Although Oz creator L. Frank Baum died twenty years prior to the release of MGM's celebrated film, his fascinating career and story, as told in this new book, will surprise even the most devoted Oz fans. Prior to MGM's 1939 release of the movie, Baum's book was featured as a Broadway musical, with songs by the justifiably forgotten Fred R. Hamlin, and two bizarre silent movies. The enduring appeal and lasting influence of The Wizard of Oz are discussed in a special chapter by creator's great-grandson Roger Baum.The Wizard of Oz will lead the reader down the proverbial yellow brick road to discover:The seven flawless decisions MGM made to adapt Baum's sprawling children's book into a movie musical.The groundbreaking moviemaking techniques, MGM's second full-length Technicolor film.The surprising story behind Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg's superlative score, which includes "Over the Rainbow," considered the greatest movie song of all time.How Judy Garland won "Dorothy," her most enduring role, after 20th Century Fox refused to loan Shirley Temple to MGM.The birth of film's greatest canine star, Cairn Terrier, Terry, as Dorothy's little dog "Toto".The many everyday Oz expressions that come from the most oft-quoted movie of all timeHow the Wicked Witch of the West (renamed her Elphaba after Oz creator's initials) was remade "for good" in Broadway's Oz prequel Wicked.This celebration of the iconic film is a must-have for all Wizard of Oz lovers.

The Wizard of Oz FAQ Book Review:

(FAQ). The Wizard of Oz FAQ is a fact-filled celebration of the beloved 1939 fantasy masterpiece starring Judy Garland. It's all here from L. Frank Baum and his Oz novels to the complete background story of the movie's conception, development, and shoot, with special attention given to the little-known parade of uncredited directors, casting difficulties, and on-set accidents and gaffes, as well as more than 75 sidebars devoted to key cast members, directors, and other behind-the-scenes personnel. You'll find a wealth of fun facts: How MGM overworked Judy Garland before, during, and after Oz; why director Victor Fleming had his hands full with the Cowardly Lion and Dorothy's other friends; what it was about Toto that really bothered Judy; the physical horrors of filming in Technicolor; the racial Oz gag that was scripted but never shot; when the Wicked Witch was going to be beautiful; why The Wizard of Oz owes a lot to silent-screen star Mary Pickford; the story of deleted scenes, and a full two weeks of shooting that had to be scrapped; why MGM star Mickey Rooney was part of the movie's traveling publicity blitz; how the Wicked Witch was literally blown off her broomstick one day; the place where lions, tigers, and bears really do live together; singers you hear but never see; the day MGM fired Judy Garland; and much more. Just follow the yellow brick road!

Emeralds of Oz Book Review:

Peter Guzzardi spent decades as an editor working with some of the wisest writers of our time—from Stephen Hawking and Deepak Chopra to Carol Burnett and Douglas Adams—yet he couldn’t shake the sense that everything he’d learned from working with them felt oddly familiar. One day, he had an epiphany: All that wisdom had its roots in a film he’d watched as a child—The Wizard of Oz. In Emeralds of Oz, Guzzardi invites us to join him on a journey through the classic film, unearthing gems of wisdom large and small about longing, joy, compassion, fear, power, and having faith in ourselves. He also creates a practical Oz-based tool that we can apply to obstacles in our own lives. Now, like Dorothy, we can activate the magical power we’ve possessed all along. Written with the grace and insight of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, Emeralds of Oz is an instant classic, sure to inspire a fresh perspective on this legendary movie—and on our own lives.

The Wicked Will Rise Book Review:

In this New York Times bestselling sequel to Dorothy Must Die, who is good—and who is actually Wicked? The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of richly reimagined fairy tales and classic tales like Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles and Gregory Maguire’s Wicked. My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn’t like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They’d joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me. My mission? Kill Dorothy. Except my job as assassin didn’t work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn’t wait to leave behind might be in danger. Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I’m really doing here.
