A little celebration

The Smithsonian is celebrating today’s anniversary, the release of MGM’s The Wizard of Oz in 1939. That’s as good a reason as any to sit in front of my TV and watch this ab-fab movie again.

imagesFavorite moments: Bert Lahr’s “If I Were King of the Forest” and “Poppies… poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep.” (I used to make my college roomie laugh histerically as I gloated over a pop-bead necklace in my best Margaret Hamilton imitation: “Pop-beads, pop-beads!”)
