Wizard Of Oz Goes Hi-Definition

KSCB News - September 21, 2009 12:00 am

AP) – Seventy years after its first screening,

“The Wizard of Oz” is headed back to theaters.

On Wednesday, for one night only, the Kansas-based film will be

shown across the country as Warner Brothers unveils a

technologically updated and improved version. After the showing,

the movie will be released on Blu-ray Hi-Def.

Although it was released 70 years ago, “The Wizard of Oz” has

retained its popularity.

It’s still seen regularly on television and spawns many fan

conventions and festivals around the country. And the Oz Museum in

tiny Wamego, west of Topeka, and the Land Of Oz in Liberal, draws tens of thousands of visitors each year

The last time “The Wizard of Oz” was on the big screen was in

1955. Even frequent viewers will be in for a surprise, because the

new digitally sharpened and brightened film provides textures and

details that were invisible in past prints.
