Morphing! What turns a black mug to vivid color? Morphing! What happens when its bubbly, steamy, or foamy? Morphing! What happens when hot cocoa is added? Morphing! What makes the mug hide its true colors? Morphing! What makes the color come up like thunder? Morphing! “What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in apricot? What have they got that I ain’t got?” the Cowardly Lion might well ask.
…while the Wicked Witch might very well respond, I’m Morphing! I’m Morphing! “Ohhh! Look out! Look out! I’m going! Ohhhh – Ohhhhhhhhhh!”
Based on the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, THE WIZARD OF OZ™ was an American musical fantasy adventure film. The debut of the movie in 1939 produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and starring Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale, Ray Bolger as The Scarecrow, Jack Haley as The Tin Woodsman, Bert Lahr as The Cowardly Lion, Frank Morgan as The Wizard of Oz, and Toto portrayed by Terry the dog was only a modest success. Winning 3 Academy Awards and nominated as Best Picture of the Year, losing to Gone With the Win, The Wizard of Oz was considered a box office failure, as the film did not recoup the studios investment. It wasn’t until later releases and its release on TV in 1956 that the movie acclaimed its real fame.
WIZARD OF OZ™ Trivia:
- Dorothy’s slippers in the book were silver. They were changed to ruby slippers to take advantage of the Technicolor.
- The Cowardly Lion’s costume was made of real lion pelts and weighed nearly 100 pounds.
- The on set temperature often exceeded 100 degrees because the early Technicolor process needed more light than normal films.
- In order to appear younger, Judy Garland, age 16, wore a corset in her role as Dorothy.
- “Jello-O” powder was used to coat the horses in the Emerald City scenes for special effects. However, filming had to be done quickly as the horses tried to lick themselves clean.
