The Wizard of Oz : on stage and film 1902-1955.

Although the 1939 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film is the best-known dramatization of the Wizard of Oz, it was not the first production. In June 1902, an extravagantly mounted stage version opened in Chicago to great critical acclaim. The 1903 New York production became one of the greatest successes in Broadway history at that time and continued as a road-show for another decade. This was followed by silent film versions, and culminating in the now classic 1939 film, images of which were featured in this portion of the Wizard of Oz exhibit.
