Technicolour dream chronicling a young Kansas girl’s descent into crime after she accidentally kills an older woman and steals her expensive looking shoes. Going on to befriend three weirdos and a con-man she then gets caught burglarising the home of the dead woman’s sister and launches a vicious acid attack. Real family friendly viewing.
A gorgeously lit musical with beautiful colors, impressive sets and a Judy Garland at her cutest, but why would Dorothy return home to a boring black and white life after wanting to run away from it all in the beginning? I also doesn't feel that strongly for all the musical numbers nor did I warm that up to the characters. Maybe I saw this film at an too old age?
