Manny P. here…

   If you read Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, you know that 1939 was THE year in the Studio Era of Motion Pictures. It seems one movie from that year continues to grow in popularity from a list of fabulous films that should never be forgotten.wizard of oz

   The Wizard Of Oz wil be back on the big screen by popular demand this Tuesday at 6:30pm in theatres across the country. NCM Fathom, Warner Home Video and Turner Classic Movies are sponsoring this nationwide tribute, and the film has been digitally re-mastered.

   After the screening, Robert Osborne (film historian and a host at TCM) will present To Oz! The Making of a Classic. This documentary will tell how L. Frank Baum’s classic novel was transformed into one of the most beloved films of all time including archival interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and rare musical outtakes.

   Tickets are still on sale. I am providing the website that will let you know where to go to see this timeless piece of cinema in your area. The list includes every theatre in the country showing the 1939 classic.



   Your family should enjoy The Wizard Of Oz just once in a theatre setting. My wife Laurie and I will be in Orange County (California) at the Century 20 Bella Terra to enjoy the evening’s festivities.

   If you would like to purchase Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History for $20 (tax included), be in front of the movie theatre at 7777 Edinger in Huntington Beach (off Beach Blvd.) at 6:00pm with a cardboard sign with my name on it (Manny Pacheco), and I will autograph a copy of the book for you. This is a special blog offer for my local readers.

   You won’t be sorry that you began your holiday season setting aside this special event.

Until next time                                  “never forget”
