This is the final Part of The Wizard Of Oz, however it’s not the last blog I’ll make on The Wizard Of Oz, it’s not going to be now. In The Wizard Of Oz Part Twelve, I’m typing you about how this film has impacted this world, and what value the ruby slippers are worth, which I found amazing. How some people would buy something that is worn by someone else is really kind of creepy. I mean just because it’s connected to this film, the value goes up,and everyone wants it. Well I don’t know about you, but I’m going to watch a limited DVD box set of The Wizard Of Oz(just look at it through the plastic wrapper, at lease no one touched the inner wrapper.

Cultural impact

Regarding the original Baum storybook, it has been said that “The...

In The Wizard Of Oz Part Ten, I’ll be typing about the many releases this film has done, and I have two different box set limited edition and another one from iTunes, so I’m happy with all three, and Ill take a photo of my two box sets, for prove, on my next blog. I just move in my new house, and I’m still putting away my things in order. Here’s The Wizard Of Oz Part Ten( I ran out of iTunes albums.

I’m off to see The Wizard once more and I know you want to come with me. In The Wizard Of Oz Part Nine, I’m texting you, about what the critics are saying about one of the greatest films of all time.

Reception

The Wizard of Oz film received much acclaim upon its release. Frank Nugent considered the film a “delightful piece of wonder-working which had the youngsters’ eyes shining and brought a quietly amused gleam to the wiser ones of the oldsters. Not since Disney’s Snow White has anything quite so fantastic succeeded half so well...

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

I’m sorry having to pay for my first film, The Wizard Of Oz, but I needed video on my website and YouTube gave me no exceptions, for the payment of Of the film, but their is video none the less, so I’m happy. I could buy the film, but I already have it in DVD and iTunes, but I wanted to have it more for entertainment than information, like others do, so I’ll have to try something else and give it a try.

Until I find a way to get more films on my website without having to use iTunes, until then, I’m going to continue with my attempt to let you see something on my website that others don’t have.

Which brings me to my next film, I’ve been asking the people who are hanging my website, for more space to upload my iTunes on my website, but that’s not going to happ...

The Wizard Of Oz

When I started to do my website, I was promise many things, which I never really got. However, they told me to have something that I can talk abut, so I told them that I love music and I wanted to do something different then all the other music websites don’t do. I love music as you might guess, but I never liked the music websites for they only have one song and that’s all, but not the whole album. so when I started my website, I uploaded iTunes thinking that I could show off my taste in music,but I never got the gigabytes I needed for to upload an album, so I deleted them, and have some of my CD’s instead.

I wanted the world know what I like and their biographies, but I didn’t know how to start it off...
