It is the story of the adventures of Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog, Toto, who are blown by a tornado from dry, dusty Kansas to the beautiful world of Oz with its yellow brick road (gold) and wise wizard (Federal Government). The fine music was rewarded by Oscars for "Over The Rainbow" as Best Song and for Best Musical Score. The film was nominated for Best Picture, and Judy Garland received an Honorary Award (Miniature Statuette) for Outstanding Juvenile Performance.
