WIZARD OF OZ, THE (1939) Photo of poppy field with snow


Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1939]. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin photo. Lower left corner is creased at a diagonal from about 3 ” (8 cm.) up on left side and 3″ (8 cm.) into the bottom, very light and not particularly noticeable. Very good+.

The four characters joyfully make their way out of the poppy field on their way to the Emerald City. The snowflakes, which awakened them from the Wicked Witch’s spell, were asbestos flakes floating down and coating the hotly-lit-for-Technicolor-photography soundstage set.
