He's Just The Oz,He's Just The Oz, The Oz You Want
"Oz The Great And Powerful", which I picked up yesterday and enjoyed last night. If you have
Blu Ray capabilities, get Ozed-you won't regret.
"But Doug", you might inquirate, "This picture doesn't go with that show."
But I did say momes of unreality, as in plural.
"Detour" from 1945 starring Ann Savage and Tom Neal also is fantasy-tastic.
I watched it on Youtube recently after prompting from a post on Movie Morlocks, and it is it's own
exceptional little noir animal.
You remember how nasty the Wicked Witch was in the original "Wizard of Oz"?
Setting Scarecrows on fire, threatening to kill young Miss Gale over shoes (must have been a sale), etc?
Wicked Witchie was a sweet saintly little grandma compared to Vera in "Detour".
Check them both out.
