Synopsis

This 1925 slapstick comedy sees Dorothy and three Kansas farmhands transported by tornado to Oz, where the 18-year-old Dorothy is destined to marry Prince Kynd. But first the farmhands must disguise themselves as a scarecrow, a tin woodman and a lion, to avoid capture by evil Prime Minister Kruel's Pumperdink guards. The first major film adaptation of L Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, this takes a very different approach to the better-known 1939 version.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
