In 1900, a man named L. Frank Baum released a children’s novel titled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. 39 years later, Judy Garland starred as Dorothy in one of the most important films of all-time. However, 1939’s The Wizard of Oz was technically a remake. In fact, there were multiple films released before the ’39 film revolutionized the industry. In addition to a silent film that debuted in 1925, both an animated film and a sequel to the ’25 film were released. Of course, Garland’s turn as Dorothy tops them all. There is no need to watch the films that came before Victor Fleming’s The Wizard of Oz.
