Confession: I've always hated The Wizard of Oz. Although we felt obligated while growing up to view the annual network television showings of this 1939 film, I don't believe that a single member of my family ever liked it. Watching it yearly was like swallowing medicine you had to take, although you had no notion as to why.
Danny Miller, a fan of the film, has a fun post on why he's always seen The Wizard of Oz as a Jewish film and how the annual viewings at his grandparents' house when he was growing up were like Passover. Read it. Danny is a very good writer.
