Ooze and Oz
Where farmhouses spin in the sky
and witches will shrivel and die
The wizard is scary
and trees are nightmare-y
and monkeys wear jackets and fly
The Wizard of Oz (Victor Fleming [and others], 1939) is one of the most vivid and terrifying memories of my childhood--and I only knew it in black-and-white on television. Margaret Hamilton was a wicked witch to remember. This tops my personal Childhood Chills.
