“Essential to any Ozophile’s collection…Scarfone and Stillman have brought as many new finds and hitherto unseen treats as possible to the pages of this retrospective.” (Book Reviews by David Marshall James)

“The wealth of knowledge and historical significance this volume contains is unprecedented.” (Lez Get Real)

“Wonderful. Fantastic. Brilliant. Gorgeous… this is by far the book to get this year or any year. It’s the perfect holiday gift, birthday gift, or gift for any occasion. Oz fans, Garland fans, MGM fans, musicals fans, and so on, will enjoy this book for years to come.” (Judy Garland News)

“Jump over the rainbow with inside stories from the classic film.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Sure to satisfy diehard fans as well as newbies….as it stands today, this book is the best tangible access to Oz goodies on print.” (PopMatters)
