Here at Mockingbird we are known to offer you some wonderfully divergent material from time to time, and this is right up that alley;) I just found out that the 70th anniversary of the release of The Wizard of Oz was on Monday! 70 years! Since it is such an iconic part of our culture, I figured it important to recognize it in some way. I stumbled across this video on of the 5 surviving members of the very large original cast of Munchkins. They are The Last of the Munchkins (not to be confused with Mohicans). Enjoy!

I’d love to hear thoughts on the theology of The Wizard of Oz, if anyone has such thoughts about it of course;) Is it a “seeker” story? Is it actually anti-Christian? Purely Humanistic? Bueller? Anyone?
