The Most Visually Appealing Version

by Zach on Jun 14, 2007

This is the most visually appealing version of the screenplay for THE WIZARD OF OZ, infact, I believe it may be the most visually appealing version of any screenplay. If you are looking for a copy of the film's screenplay, I would suggest this one. It is loaded with photos from the film, as well as an introduction about the film. This is much more interesting to look at than plan white paper with a typewriting on it. It also displays in an OZ collection much better. However, if you have no interest in the photos and just want to read the script complete with deleted scenes and dialogue, check out the copy published by the Internation Wizard of Oz Club or the one that came with THE ULTIMATE OZ video set in 1993 or THE WIZARD OF OZ DELUXE EDITION video box set from 2000. Also, one detail about this book did annoy me: Throughout the entire script the characters played by Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, and Bert Lahr are referred to as Hunk, Hickory, and Zeke (respectively; these are the names of their farmhand characters in Kansas), whereas they probably should have switched over to their OZ names (Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion, respectively) in the OZ sections of the script.
