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...

Star Maps Maven: Her Family Has Tracked Celebrity Homes for 80 Years

Linda Welton remembers the time her mother came home from work and said Marilyn Monroe had bought a map. It was a big day for a woman who’d sold Star Maps on a sidewalk near Sunset Boulevard for decades. “She said she was wearing white and was very nice,” recalled Welton, the Star Maps heir who now sits in a folding chair across from Michael Jackson’s former Los Angeles home and sells maps like her mother did, showing where the area’s biggest celebrities live. Welton was on good terms with Th...

Watch the Earliest Surviving Filmed Version of The Wizard of Oz (1910)

The Technicolor Oz that greeted Judy Garland in 1939 seems a far less colorful place than the one in 1910’s silent short, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, above. Adapted in part from a 1902 stage version, this Wizard – the earliest to survive on film – feels quite close to the spirit of author L. Frank Baum and illustrator William Wallace Denslow’s original creation. Audience members who had no familiarity with the source material must’ve been very, very confused. There’s a lot of bang fo...
