A1939 Glorious Rare Vintage Deco Ad from MGM Studios invites you to Follow the Yellow Brick Road in it's Technicolor Triumph The Wizard of Oz! Incredible Rare Original Vintage Deco Ad still in the magazine. Beautiful Technicolor Bright graphic highlights the bountiful charms of one of the greatest flights of the imagination ever witnessed on the screen, The Wizard of Oz. Taken from L. Frank Baums delightful children's classic, MGM studios took enormous pains and risks to create the splendid settings, elaborate costumes and superb beauty of Oz, employing 9,200 actors and taking over two years to bring it in all it's tirumphant splendor to audiences who had no idea what to expect. The film featured the young and unbelievably talented Judy Garland in a role that would launch her as s superstar and also among the greatest box-office draws of an incredible rich varied and successful film year. Ad gives the reader some idea of whats in store- sumptuous sets and costumes, great acting, beautiful and modern songs by Harold Arlen and E.Y Yip Harburg among them the enormously popular standard Somewhere Over the Rainbow- a simple straight to the heart ballad that 16 year old Judy Garland knew and seemed to have lived as she sang it. Ad is rare.

This magazine is in fair condition because it is missing the back page and the spine is separating. There are a few tears on the page edges on the first two pages and a few minor stains.
It is old, and should be considered as expected for a magazine that is 70 years old. Photo's shown are actual.
