  • Notes:

    An Original 8 X 10 Still from the 1939 fantasy musical adventure film “The Wizard of Oz” directed by Victor Fleming, starring Judy Garland.  In 1938 a bidding war ensued between Fox Film Corporation and MGM as to the purchase rights of L. Frank Baum’s classic novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”. FFC figured the role of Dorothy would be perfect for up and coming star Shirley Temple, but they were subsequently outbidded by MGM at a tune of $75,000 (an astronomical amount of money back then). Filming began on November 4, 1938 and “The Wizard of Oz” was released in theaters in the fall of 1939.  Given a two-million dollar budget “The Wizard of Oz” was the most expensive film MGM had ever produced at the time.  Part of the reason filming was so expensive was due to the bulk of the picture being shot in Technicolor; a colorization process that required actors to work long hours with scenes frequently having to be reshot. “Oz” was nominated for six Academy Awards, winning two, including one for Best Original Song “Over the Rainbow” and the other for Best Original Music Score (Herbert Stohart). Offered here is an Original, candid Still from 1939 featuring detailed portraits of all the film’s stars including: “Hunk”-The Scarecrow, “Zeke”-The Cowardly Lion and “Hickory”-The Tin Man.  Original Stills from this beloved fantasy film are becoming harder to find these days and this particular image of the main cast we have not acquired before.  Handling wear along the borders and a tiny stain keep this Original Still from grading any higher.  Very Good.
