Wizard of Oz Google Doodle

When I switched on my PC this morning my Google homepage had an image from the Wizard of Oz.  The reason this Google doodle was put on today is because it is the 71st anniversary of the classic film starring Judy Garland – seems impossible that it really was that long ago that she skipped up the Yellow Brick Road.

The Google doodle (pictured) is a scene from the film when Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion catch their first glimpse of the Emerald City.

The doodle is another of Google’s attempt to commemorate people or events on its home page, but if you prefer to see the real thing then don’t forget Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Wizard of Oz musical (with additional songs and lyrics by him and Tim Rice) is due to open at the London Palladium in London's West End next March (press night in February).
