I like a lot of the old classics It's a Wonderful Life, Singing in the Rain, My Fair Lady, Oliver Twist (80's version). It's a pity that movies today are so debased that I can't even sit though them anymore.

I was kinda hoping for a video about the author of the novel from which the movie was based on. His take on finance and banking that influenced his work is worth your research time and efforts.

Yes, the slippers should have been silver to represent the silver standard. The yellow brick road represented the gold standard. The movie is great, but the book will teach you a lot more about the financial world we live in.

sucks what happened behind the scenes. that was a good movie. Wizard of Oz was a much better movie than Gone with the Wind. I couldn't stand the lead actress in that movie.

Wow. There were lots of stories about Shirley Temple being sexually abused by producers, etc., so it's not hard to believe they'd try it on Judy Garland too. The lack of concern that was shown to all the actors is appalling. I have heard of Ebsen's bout with the aluminum, but never have heard these other reports.

As they said, there weren't really any child labor laws, so after they supposedly abolished slavery, children were still used and payed far less than an adult woman, and a fraction of an adult male. Look into the textile mills. They used a lot of child labor, because the kids could crawl on the floor to get small objects that would otherwise jam the machine. They risked losing fingers to do so. Plus, they didn't have any face protection, so many developed respiratory issues from inhaling cotton fibres, especially at an age before the lungs are fully developed. Also, look into the meat packing district in NYC. These kids were paid far less than on a movie, abused more and had more grueling work. The book "The Jungle" talks about the meat packing district. From this book being written, so many people were horrified, it's what lead to more food and work safety regulations. One small example, a guy's arm got pulled into the meat grinder by accident. Let's just say the meat wasn't thrown out. This guy lost his job and was not compensated in any way.
