Charles Troy Presents




Wed, Oct 5  1:30 pm     Tickets: $15

This legendary 1939 film is the most watched movie of all time. It’s so well-known that even its backstory is familar. But there’s a far more fascinating story behind the usual backstory: MGM studio intrigue; amazingly bad decisions reversed in the nick of time; and one brilliant, audacious choice early on by a man who received no screen credit that was critical in making “The Wizard of Oz” the beloved classic it became.
