"The Wizard of Oz"

My favorite movie when I was growing up was "The Wizard of Oz". It was scary, colorful and magical. Judy Garland was so cute too. Later when I read about how she won the role over Shirley Temple it was surprising to me. As much as I loved Shirley, it had to be Judy to play the part of Dorothy. Those flying monkeys were terribly frightening and I swear I still get a creepy feeling when I watch that movie... which I do at least once a year.
I actually met one of the Munchkins last year on a tour of Judy Garland's childhood home in Minnesota. I took a friend along to tour the Judy Garland museum with me and I even bought an old Wizard of Oz book... which I found out later wasn't very old. Oh well...
So how did you feel about "The Wizard of Oz"?
