In spite of the “funny” Scarecrow and Lion-the singing and dancing- the Munchkins, there is a dark nightmare quality, a medieval fairy tale atmosphere to this movie which strikes a deep;y buried note in the psyche. Feelings of loss, entrapment, helplessness abound. I love this movie , but to be truthful, the first time I saw it I was scared to death and a little sad.
