Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Readers of the first bare-bones studio outline of The Wizard of Oz in 1938 never imagined that it would metamorphose and mushroom into one of the most iconic films of all time. On the 75th anniversary of the movie's release, two renowned Wizard authorities have, with the close collaboration of Warner Brothers, constructed a book companion that remains true to the magical spirit of the original. In addition to rarely seen stills, photographs, and illustrations, this attractively designed hardcover contains ten removable Oz features as well as other innovative components. Five clicks of those famous ruby shoes.

Book Reviews by David Marshall James
“Essential to any Ozophile’s collection…Scarfone and Stillman have brought as many new finds and hitherto unseen treats as possible to the pages of this retrospective.”
Variety
“The coffee table book offers a treasure trove of images, including startling photos of Judy Garland testing multiple wigs in various styles and colors-including cascading blonde locks.”
The Royal Blog of OZ
“The rare photos and new information in the book are worth the price of the book alone. Well done to Stillman and Scarfone!”
Psychobabble

People magazine
“Filled with behind-the-scenes facts and photos (Judy Garland in a soon-to-be-nixed blonde wig!), the film’s 75th-anniversary compendium is a must-have for fans.”
