(1978, Sidney Lumet) “Dorothy and her entourage of malfunctioning under-achievers move on from rural Kansas to face the contemporary perils of… disco-chic New York in this all black, or rather Motown, version of Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, adapted from the Broadway hit musical (with Charlie Smalls’ original score augmented by Quincy Jones). …On the plus side are vast, brilliant sets by Tony Walton, a couple of well-staged show-stoppers (‘Everybody Rejoice’ in the Wicked Witch’s sweat-shop, and ‘Emerald City Ballet’), Michael Jackson (the Scarecrow), Richard Pryor (The Wiz), and Diana Ross who, as Dorothy, is just gorgeous.” – Time Out. With Lena Horne, Mabel King, and Thelma Carpenter. DCP. Approx. 104 min.
