The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Poster: The Wizard of Oz
Director: Victor Fleming
Cast: Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Margaret Hamilton and Billie Burke

If you must have just one of MGM's (and Fleming's!) color colossi of 1939, then this is the one. Even more so than Gone With the Wind, this charmer remains fresh and continues to appeal to audiences young and old.
