Talk:The Wizard of Oz
Where to begin? It wasn't even close to the first color movie ever released, Disney was using Technicolor in his cartoons back in the early 1930s. The device of having the first reel in black-and-white was cute, though. (I assume I'm not the only literal-minded geek who has always been annoyed by the fact that for a few seconds, you see that the interior walls of her room are in color, too, rather than a black-and-white room and door frame outlining the colored view of Oz outside).
L. Frank. Baum's book deserves priority over the movie adapted from it... No time now... Dpbsmith 13:24, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
- Certainly the book deserves priority. The movie changed several plot elements and IIRC introduced at least one major new character. There's a fascinating account of this in World&I magazine which I can email you. --Ed Poor 10:12, 20 April 2007 (EDT)

I might add that there are legions of Oz fans -- some of whom are delighted to learn there is real depth to the story, and others of whom are ANGRY that anyone tamper with their childhood memories. RJJensen 14:17, 4 December 2008 (EST)
I think it would look better in a Quote Box, but I always screw up the code when I try to do those, if someone else with more knowledge of the Wiki code would like to change it, please do JDavidsonLeave a message ::BEEP:: 17:22, 27 June 2008 (EDT)
