Considered one of the Top 10 classic 'English' movies (my researched #10). As commented below, it's a treasured classic. It is the top fantasy film, followed by the drama/fantasy "It's a Wonderful Life" at #13. See my GerryD Lists for other classic movies.

The Wizard Of Oz is probably one of the most famous Hollywood films of the 1930s and, maybe, even the 1940s._____ As I understand it, when "Oz" was first released back in 1939 it really wasn't a colossal hit. It wasn't until the 1950s and the coming of TV that it attracted a humongous fanbase and from there it went on to become one of the most popular fantasy films of all-time._____ Filmed at MGM Studios, "Oz" was made at a time when this studio was, without question, the wealthiest, most impressive, and most successful film studio in the USA._____ Back in 1939 "Oz" was made simply as a show-piece. This was MGM gloating, showing the world just how much power they wielded, that they could make an expensive film like this one and not care whether it earned them a profit, or not._____ Little did MGM realize at the time that, being a mere show-piece, "Oz" would go on to be one of the most beloved films ever.

"Lions! & Tigers! & Bears! - Oh, My!!"._____Heels click, spells are cast, and houses fly over the rainbow in this marvelous technicolor Fantasy/Adventure from Hollywood's heyday._____Beautiful set-designs, impressive make-up effects, memorable songs, and a wonderful cast all add up to a truly dazzling movie-experience.____ The Wizard of Oz is an ultimate, uncomparable classic.

Kansas farm girl Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) lives with her Aunt Em (Clara Blandick), Uncle Henry (Charley Grapewin), and three farm hands, Hickory (Jack Haley), Hunk (Ray Bolger), and Zeke (Bert Lahr). When Miss Almira Gulch (Margaret Hamilton) is bitten by Dorothy's pet Cairn Terrier, Toto, she gets a sheriff's order and takes him away to be destroyed. He escapes and returns to Dorothy, who, fearing for his life, runs away with him. Dorothy soon encounters a traveling fortune teller named Professor Marvel (Frank Morgan), who guesses she has run away and tells her fortune. He convinces her to return home by falsely telling her that Aunt Em has fallen ill from grief. With a tornado fast approaching, she rushes back to the farmhouse, but is unable to join her family in the locked storm cellar. Taking shelter inside the house, she is knocked unconscious by a window frame blown in by the twister.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Dorothy's encounters with the Wicked Witch of the West are pretty intense.
