The Wizard of Oz/绿野仙踪

In fact, "Oz: The Great and Powerful" is the prequel of this movie in the timeline of the story, while the former one is shot several decades later and makes much progress in visual effect. Yet, this movie, shot in 1930s, is a masterpiece of that era.

Although it is a fairy tale, the story is full of metaphors and correspondence between fantasy and reality (such as Professor Marvel vs. The Wizard of Oz, the three farm laborer vs. the three partners, the mean lady Miss Gulch vs. the wicked witch, etc.). The correspondence is also reflected in the 2013 movie "Oz: The Great and Powerful".

从时间线上来说,《魔境仙踪》是本片的前传,只不过拍摄比本片晚了几十年,当然在特效上进步了不少。但拍摄于20世纪30年代的本片就那个年代来说,也已经非常出色。

虽然说是童话,但本片充满了各种隐喻,以及幻境与现实的一一对应(撒谎的流浪魔术师与巫师Oz,三个农场帮工与路上遇到的三个伙伴,恶狠狠的Miss Gulch与邪恶女巫,等等)。这样的对应关系也体现在了2013年的新片《魔境仙踪》中。
