"There's no place like home." Just as Dorothy returns to Kansas at the end of this classic American fairy tale, viewers young and old still watch "The Wizard of Oz" and are transported to the magical land of poppy fields and singing munchkins. Based on the novel "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum and released in 1939, this film is one of the most iconic of its century. Dorothy's ruby slippers and the movie's quotes and characters and now permanently ingrained in American pop culture. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer)
