Celebrate the 80th anniversary of the movie, "The Wizard of OZ" with Alsip-Merrionette Park Library and Charles Troy from the Skokie Theater. This legendary 1939 film is the most watched movie of all time.  It’s so well-known that even its backstory is familiar. But there’s a far more fascinating story behind the usual backstory: MGM studio intrigue; amazingly bad decisions reversed in the nick of time; and one brilliant, audacious choice early on by a man who received no screen credit that was critical in making “The Wizard of Oz” the beloved classic it became. Call to Register.
