This one was a hard one to figure out but I'll give it a shot.
There's this girl named Dorothy who lives with her aunt and uncle. I don't know what happened to her parents, it never reveled that in the film that I'm aware of. I'm not sure but I think she's mentally challenged. Considering her age, she acts a bit...unusual. So anyway, she has this dog named Toto and some old woman wants the sheriff to kill the dog and for some reason the sheriff's going to do it. But anyway, Dorothy goes running off and she meets this old man with a wagon who tries to get her to leave with him in his wagon. This seemed particularly sinister taking into account my theory that Dorothy is mentally challenged. So anyway, she must have a guardian angel looking over her shoulder because she manages not to be taken away in the old man's wagon. Well, she returns home just in time to get caught in a tornado and she ends up still out in the storm after everyone else has long since gotten into the storm cellar. This seems to be more evidence that Dorothy is mentally challenged. So, anyway, the tornada comes and carries the house, with Dorothy and her dog, to some place far away where a bunch of midgets live. The house falls on an elderly lady and kills her and for some reason the midgets are elated by this tragedy. To make matters worse, Dorothy steals the poor woman's shoes right off her dead feet. She starts walking down this yellow brick road and meets a lion, a scarecrow and a tin woodsman and...well, I don't want to ruin the movie for you, but I will say that it gets even stranger as it goes along.
This version has a lot of bonus material. It's the best one to get as the 3 disc version just has a bunch of extra crap you probably don't want. On the other hand, if you like bonuses, this version has a lot of stuff you'll like that the single disc version doesn't have.

Warner Brothers' Poor Blu-Ray Quality
Confederate | Bethesda, MD | 09/25/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The video itself is a wonderful transfer, but Warner Brothers' continuing problems with Blu-Ray disks that go flaky with little if any warning makes buying this a questionable proposition. I've had a number of Warner Brothers Blu-Rays just stop working without a scratch, smudge or dimple. I've tried contacting WB about this, but they don't respond. The regular DVDs seem to work well, but the Blu-Rays seem to have some production problems. (And just try to get one replaced after several months, which is how long it takes for these disks to fail.)
If anyone knows if WB is ever going to address these problems (Wiz. of Oz, Willie Wonka and others), I'd like to know. I've tried these disks on multiple devices and they've failed to play -- and this after playing flawlessly six or seven times. It's as if suddenly, boom -- they stop being recognized.
I've had no problems with the DVDs, though.
A wonderful edition
