On this day 84 years ago…August 25, 2023
…one of the most beloved films of all time, The Wizard of Oz debuted in theatres.
According to Wikipedia, due to the film’s high production cost, despite earning millions as the box office, The Wizard of Oz didn’t break even until a re-release a decade later, in 1949.
Did you know that the realistic snow portrayed in the film, was actually asbestos? No kidding.
