Was she actually a good actress or did her legacy boost dramatically for staring in a cult classic?
>wannabe critics think fucking Judy Garland needs to have her legacy revised and knocked down a peg
You need to go outside for a bit anon, get some air
She attempted suicide twice and died of an accidental prescribed overdose
First film ever in color
Effects way ahead of its time
Contains one of the most iconic songs in Cinema history (Over the Rainbow)
Arguably the most used play in theater next to Romeo & Juliet
Oh and it's nearly 100 years old, but yeah it's not a classic hah
Wasnt she actually 16 years old when she stared in the Wizard of Oz though? And i wonder why they never made the sequel to Wizard of Oz since it's based on the novels which is 3 parts I think.. Wizard of Oz is way more darker in the book than what they did with the 1939 film
A bunch of fuck up shit happened on that set, the midgets were trying to get Judy drunk so they could gang fuck her (she was 16 at the time) the midget killing himself, the shit they used to make the Wicked Witch of the West skin green stayed on her for a month... A lot of crazy shit
It's all mostly shit involving the Tin-man, like his original backstory of being a dude that was working his ass off to pay his marriage fee or something, but the Witch of the East cursed his axe so he cut off all his limbs and had them replaced by ones made of tin until he realized he was all made of tin
And then there's the part where the axes a Mountain Lion's head off, attracts a swarm of bees that tries to sting him but ended up killing themselves, he kills a couple of the flying monsters that kidnap Dorothy, and the Scarecrow gets attacked by a bunch of crows, and his way out is to break their necks one by one untill there's literally a pile of dead crows on the floor.
>Not wanting to fug prime Judy Garland
Out of here, faggot.
And the director was pro-Nazi, Tin man nearly died from breathing in that aluminum paint on his face, Witch of the West got her arm and hand burned from the special effects. That set was a Zoo, wish i was there to witness the comedy
>pop over to /tv/ for the first time
>see this thread
Ya'll deserve each other. Goodbye forever.
the best way to really understand it is that there was a SHITLOAD of films with color sequences and even a bunch of two color feature films released in the 20's and early 30's
the first film to use what we'd consider today to be actual color (three strip technicolor) was this movie in 1935
Does anybody else wish we got to see what the Witch of the East looked like, wasn't she stronger than the Witch of the West because of the Ruby shoes?
And why was there no Witch of the South and the "Good" Witch of the North served almost no purpose
yeah they basically kept her in a coffin, gave her with sleeping pills then woke her up from her rest coccoon then gave her pep pills etc
it's creepy as fuck when you see her being so sweet and caring throughout that movie
>First film ever in color
Do you know what Wizard of Oz lost best picture to?
Yes, it really was. It was stupidly successful at integrating colored filming in a time when most people only designed for black and white. Colored animations had already been around, but live action color filming had no pedigree. This. Shit. Is. Impressive.
Are you retarded? Costume designers would design the costumes to look best in black and white. If you saw half the shit they were wearing in color they would look ridiculous.
They did the same thing with sports. Thats why the Packers have those ugly brown and yellow throwback jerseys. They looked good in black and white on a tv.
Is it me or is the audio on this film fucked up? As in, it looks like there's two audio tracks playing at the same time, and they're out of synch in a way that everything sounds like General Grievious
They could have done a reboot with this girl
>missed their chance
When I was a little kid I went through a phase where I watched this movie every day. My parents thought I just loved the movie. I did enjoy the whole thing, but the real reason I watched it so much was because this face turned me on. Even as a 5 year old I knew that was wrong, and it would be weird if I just paused the movie and stared, so I'd watch the whole thing every single day to get to this one scene.
There is a dog that is about 10,000 years old, he only exists in the form of cancer cells now but still alive
>The success of this single cell lineage, believed to be the longest continually propagated cell lineage in the world
nah it wouldn't have worked with her, she's not as pretty and she doesn't have those puppy dog eyes and that look of innocence that Judy captured perfectly
men in america were brainwashed by hags. They literally hate themselves as if they're the worse sort of degenerate deviants because someone under 18 is cute and has breasts
now they're not allowed to have good feelings, cuteness in their lives or erections
i dont know how the red-ish brown hair looks cuter
>you will never see the unused takes with Blonde Judy
>you will never see the film in its original 2h and 10 minute running time
>tfw the only remaining footage of the Jitterbug number is some shitty 16mm home movie some guy did
Dorothy had a huge cleft in her chin...
I think it was implied that Dorothy was the Witch of the South (being from Kansas), that's why the Witch of the North kept asking her "are you a good witch or a bad witch?" and plus the Ruby slippers wouldn't come off her
The good witch of the North and South appear in the novel, there probaly isn't any north/south witches in the movie because there's only Glinda without any specification if she's the north or south witch.
Glinda is South in the novel but North in the film, you can make a case for Dorthy being the Witch of the South in the film with little hints but it's safe to assume there's no Witch of the South in the 1939 film
>something cant be mainstream and a cult classic
this is probably one of the first cult movies with fanclubs, cons and things like that. Not to mention the cultural significance it has.
>First film ever in color
>Arguably the most used play in theater next to Romeo & Juliet
The most used play is however Sherlock Holmes, not Romeo and Juliet dumbass, it's the work of art that had more movies, series or similar based upon.
I don't know how it started all started, but she was friendly with gay people. Must be that she hung out with a lot of them being in musicals and all. They wound up loving her. I'll give you three guesses, and the first two don't count, as to why the rainbow is the gay pride symbol.
she's a fragile dainty little diva who's slightly tragic in her fall from youthful glory, messed up head, and was in a classic of camp (the three companions are pretty campy caricatures, "friends of dorothy")
also some bi dudes probably would have enjoyed her cuteness when she was young
Sad that you can't make a movie like this anymore. Gene Kelly would have to be black and they'd have to sing a song about being a trans testical pair with acceptable gender pronouns.
