Wizard of Oz
Somehow this reminds me of "Girl Interrupted" where one of the adolescent patients had a fixation on The Wizard of Oz.........

I did love the movie as a kid but it has been played so many times I am over it. But I have seen some great Halloween costumes where people dressed as the Oz characters...

I think Halloween is my favorite holiday. It reminds me of "Carnival" in Europe. In Switzerland I loved it when for two weeks adults could come out and "play" dressing and becoming whatever characters they wanted to be by night. :wink:
