TITLE: THE WIZ
FORMAT: BRITISH QUAD (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell, Lena Horne, Richard Prior. DIRECTOR: Sidney Lumet.
NOTES: A black, urban version of "The Wizard of Oz" in which the action is transferred to the slums of Harlem and Diana Ross's Dorothy is an emotionally unstable adult, rather than a winsome, wide-eyed child. The film was not very well liked by the critics but it remains an important period piece of black American culture and a curious vehicle for some great Tamla Motown stars. Good musical numbers from Michael Jackson and others.
CONDITION: Grade A. MINT. Folded, as issued.
