The Hollywood Section held its annual Holiday screening at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Linwood Dunn Theater, on Saturday morning, December 11.
Through the courtesy of Warner Bros./Turner Entertainment Co., we ran the 1939 MGM classic THE WIZARD OF OZ to 100 members and their families.
The presentation was preceded by a greeting from Patricia Keighley, the section’s secretary/treasurer, and some information on the film from Dick May, past chair.
A show of hands was asked, as to who in the audience had never seen the picture, which had a response of two people. In asking how many had never seen it in a theater, almost all of the audience responded.
The usual perfect Academy quality showing followed, using an answer print made directly from the original Technicolor 3-strip negatives.
