Wizard of Oz Kicks Off AFI Movie Club

Posted by Larry Gleeson

The American Film Institute (AFI) announced on March 31st it’s launching of a daily virtual gathering of cinephiles and movie lovers from around the globe. AFI Trustee and legendary filmmaker, Steven Spielberg, kicked off the optimistic and forward-thinking event with an introduction to the AFI Movie Club’s first film, The Wizard of Oz, and one of the film’s most important messages, “there’s no place like home.”


And, if that’s not enough check out what Judy Garland’s daughters Liza Minelli and Lorna Luft thought about THE WIZARD OF OZ the first time they saw it.

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one terrified by flying monkeys!

Stay tuned for more on this daily excursion with the AFI Movie Club!
