This Actor Played Five Separate Roles In The Wizard Of Oz

Because of the popularity of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that was notoriously dangerous to film, modern audiences have a great deal of information about its production. Many books have been written about "The Wizard of Oz." I recommend "The Making of The Wizard of Oz: Movie Magic and Studio Power" (1977) by Aljean Harmetz for a good historical view of film production in 1939. But even for those of us who have seen the film dozens if not hundreds of times, there may be details, lyrics, nua...

Filming The Wizard Of Oz Was Actually Very Dangerous. Here's Why

The 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz," quite possibly the most famous movie of all time, had a notoriously messy production. While the film is based on the book by L. Frank Baum, first published in 1900, the 1939 film version has supplanted it in the popular consciousness with its memorable songs, indelible iconography (and employing the overused phrase "indelible iconography" is apt when talking about "The Wizard of Oz"), cutting-edge special effects, nightmarish images (those monkeys!), and charact...

Jackpot Ultra Running Festival Race Report - 2019

My wife Mel has seen me run 100 milers. She has seen me barf on my feet. She has seen me sleepwalking from absolute exhaustion. She has seen my legs look like they need an exorcism as they twist into knots with cramps. She has seen me give birth to blisters the size of a Toyota Prius.My wife is a smart person.So I have no idea why, after everything she has seen me go through, she would willingly choose to register for a 100 miler. And then she suggested I could run it with her. The only logical ...

Caught in the circus of life

There was a storm. Hail, wind, rain. It came fast. Soul-o hid under the bed. I felt a bit like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, securing the cover on the wood and fighting my way to the door. Just clowning around to keep it light.

Watch Harry Styles Cover Britney Spears’ “Toxic” At Madison Square Garden

Commendably, Harry Styles has been using his recent arena tour to do whatever he feels like doing. He’s booked Jenny Lewis and Orville Peck as his opening acts. He enters the stage to a Shuggie Otis song. In the last two nights, he’s dressed up in tremendously silly Halloween costumes to play shows at Madison Square Garden. (He’s called them his “Harryween” shows, which is a terrible pun, but whatever.) On the first night, Styles dressed up as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz, and he sang “Somewher...

Servant Season 3 Teaser: M. Night Shyamalan's Horror Series Returns In January

There's about to be a standoff on M. Night Shyamalan's "Servant," which has just released its teaser trailer for the upcoming season 3 — and I, for one, would like to see it.The trailer, which is just under a minute-and-a-half, is heavy on the atmosphere, intrigue, and fear that the Apple TV+ series has come to be known for. The visual follows Dorothy, played by Lauren Ambrose, and her unease three months after the ending of last season. She is petrified that she will become victim to the cult t...

Comment on zucchini rice and cheese gratin by Dorothy

This was delicious. Read everyone’s comments…shredded/did not drain. Did not use flour nor milk–used chicken stock. Had no issue with rice cooking through (used a dutch oven to do the entire thing). Just shy a few grams of zucchini so added riced cauliflower to make up the difference. Also added lemon zest and that really brightened it. Served with a pan-seared cod in lemon/wine sauce. Will try with a spicy sausage next. It’s a keeper!

14 Family Horror Films That Were Too Scary For Kids

Ask anyone about the memorable movies of their childhood, and chances are there will be at least one that has left some long-lasting trauma. We all remember those films that we watched at a tender and vulnerable age that scarred us for life. In some cases, it's because we watched "grown up" movies when we were too young; more often than not, though, it's because we watched a PG film that ended up containing something horrific, terrifying, or heinous that gave us nightmares for weeks. Whether it'...

Is this the first time Great Value Ice Cream has been available in pints? Also, this is the first time I’ve seen a biscuits & jam flavored ice cream.
