Shows how much of our favorite fairyland was informed by the early Oz stage shows and films. The infiltration of the “Wizard of Oz” story into our cultural bloodstream was not an overnight process. Swartz tracks the influences and popularity of the many stage and screen productions of the story that preceded the 1939 Judy Garland film. Describes specific performances, compares and contrasts them with others, and shows how each influenced the ones that followed, up to the 1939 movie and beyond to contemporary stage adaptations. “An essential book for theater historians, students of children’s lit., and viewers of “The Wizard of Oz.” Profuse illus. -- photos, movie stills, posters, actors’ costume shots, and artists’ impressions of the story.
