There are times where I'll find a compilation or bootleg that I do not know the original source. I always try to give credit where it's due but sometimes it's impossible for me to know just where it originated. If you are a blogger or someone who happens to have made a particular bootleg or compilation and you find it listed here let me know and I will give you full credit...

Return To Oz/David Shire

As a fan of the Oz books by L Frank Baum, I have to say I'm a way bigger fan of this movie than the MGM musical. This movie has the look,feel and attitude just right.

It's unfortunate that this was Walter Murch's only film he'd direct. It bombed and hardly anybody out there understood it. Why was it so grim? Where were the singing munchkins?

David Shire's score fully compliments the imagery to a T. It's kind of got that turn of the century ragtime feel to it, which is when these books were being written.

The film and score happen to be amongst my favorite things ever.
