Follow the Yellow Brick Road

Because of annual TV showings during the holidays, “Wizard of Oz” is now ranked as the most watched movie of all time. New generations of children get to enjoy it, while old duffs like me, who saw it when it came out in 1939, get to enjoy it again and again and again (you get the idea).

1. Who was the author of the series of books about Oz?

2. What was the name of the group of little people who played the Munchkins?

3. The director of the movie won an Oscar that same year for directing “Gone with the Wind.” Who was he?

4. Frank Morgan was the wonderful Wizard. What was his name back in Kansas?

5. What was Dorothy’s last name?

6. Now a toughy and my favorite. The Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion were based on farmhands on Auntie Em’s farm. What were the farmhands names?
