Celebrating the Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz on August 25, 1939 with a Classic Movie Anecdote!
The Wizard of Oz was released nationally in the US on this day in 1939. That said, I just wanted to share this fun little anecdote told by Meredith Ponedel, niece of Dottie Ponedel who was Judy Garland’s make-up artist (and make-up artist to MANY other Hollywood icons)…
In this clip from our “Classic Movies & More” YouTube Channel, Meredith shares her childhood memories about the time Judy Garland called the house and sang “Over the Rainbow” to Meredith over the phone. Meredith was so young, she really didn’t understand the importance of this — and I hate to tell you what she did! So, please watch the video clip to find out! Enjoy!
Hope this video made you laugh as much as I did 🙂
