Alfred P. Doolittle: The old bloke died and left me four thousand pounds a year in his bloomin' will. Who asked him to make a gentleman out of me? I was happy. I was free. I touched pretty nigh everyone for money when I wanted it, same as I touched him. Now, I'm tied neck and heels, and everybody touches me. A year ago, I hadn't a relation in the world except one or two who wouldn't speak to me. Now, I've fifty, and not a decent week's wages amongst the lot of 'em. Oh, I have to live for others now, not for myself. Middle-class morality.Opened: October 21, 1964 Runtime: 2 hr. 50 min. Genre: Musical, Drama, Family Rated: U

Oz: I don't want to be a good man... I want to be a great one.
Oz the Great and Powerful started off in cropped black & white, a genius move if I may say, as it immediately captured my interest, and it felt original (of course an homage to the 1939 film.) The segue from black & white to colour almost eluded me because of how deeply interested in the story; that and the beautiful/amazing visual effects used to depict Oz (the land), beautiful mise en scène, beautiful!
