Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 10/04/1978
"...Director Sidney Lumet has created what amounts to a love letter to the city of New York, which he equates with Oz..."
New York Times - 10/26/1978
"...Real, old-fashioned production numbers....Children and Diana Ross fans will probably think every penny was well spent."

Product Description:

In this Sidney Lumet-directed Motown rendition of THE WIZARD OF OZ, Diana Ross plays a soulful Dorothy, accompanied by a cast peppered with R&B stars such as Roberta Flack and Luther Vandross.

Rating 3.0 Ease On Down The Road Movie Lover: from Zanadu -- February, 12, 2008

DIANA crashes and burns again and what a glorious journey it is!!! The movie drags and even seems to have an "arc of sadness" to it. AND...DIANA was waaaay tooo old to play a TWELVE year old little girl!! Now, having said that...I loved the musical numbers! Everyone (including Diana) shine during the musical moments in the movie. You will love Diana singing, "Home". Michael Jackson singing, "You Can't Win". The "Brand New Day" dance number and of course, "Ease On Down..." A collector's edition containing a cd of the soundtrack is avaiable. Music to ears of all of you nastalgic Diana and M.J fans.
