py[;According to the Chinese Theater website, if I'm reading it correctly, OZ is going into steady Imax rotation for a few more months at least.

I saw it there this afternoon, and I was definitely not disappointed; in fact, I was delighted at many fascinating details no longer invisible to the (almost) naked eyes.

Now I've got to tell you about two of the times I took someone to the theater with me to see OZ. The first time, it was my girlfriend and she had never seen it before. We watch the movie, she loves it, and it goes back to the last scene in Dorothy's bedroom, and when Bolger, Haley and Lahr poke their heads in the window suddenly my girlfriend gasps: "It's THEM!" She'd gone through the whole movie without recognizing the farmhands in their OZ make-up.

On my first viewing I didn't get it at all: I didn't recognize those folks even in the epilogue. Maybe I was an unusually dense child. I must have been very young. I remember my mother explaining how the actors were well-known personalities. Of course I had never heard of any of them, not even Judy Garland. Today, by contrast, I can't turn on the TV (TCM, of course) without gasping, "Isn't that so and so?" or "I forgot that he was in this one." or "Didn't she look different in those days?" Knowledge is a good thing, but it does take you out of the story. I can see why so many directors prefer to cast their films with unfamiliar faces.

A friend brought up an interesting idea. He suggested that it might have been even more effective if the sepia-toned Kansas scenes had been left in 2d, and that we then go to 3d at the same time we go to color.

It is a good idea....except....the sepia section looked remarkable in 3-D.
