The Wizard of Oz (1939) Poster

A fine place to start is by viewing: The Wizard of Oz (1939). It was seeing this film on television as a child that I first noticed Victor Fleming's name on screen. This film never fails to move me.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Captains Courageous (1937) DIRECTOR, PRODUCER
The Farmer Takes a Wife (1935) DIRECTOR
A Guy Named Joe (1943) DIRECTOR
