Dorothy (Judy Garland) fantasizes about a land far away from home and sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
Not to be confused with the cinematic classic starring Judy Garland that would follow six years later, this animated short film is one of countless other celluloid adaptations of L. Frank Baum’s best-loved story, The Wizard of Oz. Directed by Ted Eshbaugh, the Canadian film features no dialogue and tells the story of Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, and Tin Man’s adventures in Oz with a mix of black & white and color animation.
