The Wizard of Oz 'was my very first literary influence,' writes Salman Rushdie in his account of the great MGM children's classic. At the age of ten he had written a story, 'Over the Rainbow', about a colourful fantasy world. But for Rushdie The Wizard of Oz is more than a children's film, and more than a fantasy. It's a story whose driving force is the inadequacy of adults, in which 'the weakness of grown-ups forces children to take control of their own destinies'. And Rushdie rejects the conventional view that its fantasy of escape from reality ends with a comforting return to home, sweet home. On the contrary, it is a film that speaks to the exile. The Wizard of Oz shows that imagination can become reality, that there is no such place like home, or rather that the only home is the one we make for ourselves. Rushdie's brilliant insights into a film more often seen than written about are rounded off with his typically scintillating short story, 'At the Auction of the Ruby Slippers,' about the day when Dorothy's red shoes are knocked down to $15,000 at a sale of MGM props. In his foreword to this special edition, published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BFI Film Classics series, Rushdie looks back to the circumstances in which he wrote the book, when, in the wake of the controversy surrounding The Satanic Verses and the issue of a fatwa against him, the idea of home and exile held a particular resonance.… (més)

Fun little essay. Don't read the 3 pg. followup at the end. ( )

Salman Rushdie simply gets it. His criticism of one of America's most treasured movies is spot on. Mixing arguments that include topics such as immigration as well as self concept, Rushdie proves why this 1939 masterpiece is more than just a fantasy movie. ( )

Part of the British ,Film Institute's Film Classics series. An essay by Salman Rushdie on the film The Wizard of Oz, offering personal stories and historial insighs into the film's production. Rushdie's first ever short story was called Over the Rainbow, written aged ten - and lost somewhere along the way. This slim volume also includes a new story by Rushdie, At the Auction of the Ruby Slippers.
Plenty of photographs and the full film credits make this a great book for film fans. ( )
