Return to Oz - Putting the Pieces Together

So many of our readers have a fondness for Walt Disney Studios 1985 film, Return to Oz, that I thought I'd share another cool RTO item today. This is one of the British jigsaw puzzles produced by the Falcon Company. They are really cool! Mainly because they feature original artwork - not movie stills or the Drew Struzan poster art. If you click on the image below it will enlarge and you can see tons more detail!


And for all the Return to Oz fans in southern California there will be a screening of a 35mm print of Return to Oz at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica on November 28, 2010 at 7:30 PM. Of special interest is a Q&A after the screening with the film's Director, Walter Murch. And for the MGMers among you, the 1939 Wizard of Oz film will have a screening the same day at 4:00 PM. Here's a link.

It's interesting to see at they put the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion in this scene.

Interesting that they stuck the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion into the scene!

It's interesting that...

Oh beaten to the punch by Bill and S.P.

It's a really nice picture, but I don't like jigsaw puzzles very much.

It's interesting that everyone seems to be picking up on that!

Actually all three of the British puzzles in this set include the Lion, Scarecrow and Tin Woodman in scenes that they aren't supposed to be in.

I would go to that screening cuz I'm curious about Murch. I found the movie dreary when I first saw it in the theater ('cept for the great costume design), but sorta liked it when I saw it on TV. Except for the electro-shock Tik-Tok.
