"If you believe in yourself, you will have brains, heart and courage to last your life through," declares Dorothy to her newfound friends. The group finally finds the way to realize their hopes and dreams in the spectacular movie version of the hit Broadway musical based on L. Frank Baum's classic The Wizard Of Oz. Diana Ross and Michael Jackson head an all-star cast. This lavishly mounted production is driven by Quincy Jones' high energy music and boasts the look of a highly imaginative tomorrow as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion "ease on down the road" through this fantastic, magical land on their way to see the Wiz.
