Film details

Fleming’s classic begins in the monochrome world of Kansas but bursts into colour when Dorothy’s (Garland) house, uprooted in a tornado, lands in the surreal fairyland of Oz. Dorothy’s mythic journey seems to reveal that to find one’s heart’s desire, ‘there’s no place like home’. A clear influence on Wild at Heart, there is also something of the dark underbelly about this influential fantasy.
