The Wiz
Sidney Lumet, 1978
USA | Format: 35mm | 133 minutes

Lumet's felicitous foray into musicals, this dynamic adaptation of The Wizard of Oz features an all-star cast and toe-tapping soundtrack. Set in 1970s New York, the film stars Diana Ross as the timid Dorothy who gets swept away to the land of Oz for a journey of self-discovery. With its spectacular Art Deco-meets-disco landscapes, costumes by Oscar de la Renta and Norma Kamali, and music by Quincy Jones, it's a treat for all ages. Nominated for Academy Awards for art decoration, cinematography,  and score. Co-starring Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow and Richard Pryor as “The Wiz.”
