Oz the Great and Powerful and Snow!

The countdown continues towards the premier of Oz the Great and Powerful and events from today make this particular Oz posting relevant.

In the MGM 1939 Wizard of Oz film, the appearance of snow is transformed into a spell-breaking event, thus saving Dorothy, Toto and the Cowardly Lion from the effects of the poppies.


Glinda; Good Witch of the North makes it snow, thus breaking the spell of the Wicked Witch of the West.

In L. Frank Baum's book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), Glinda is the Good Witch of the South, but I suppose that a southern witch wouldn't be likely to conjur up snow, whereas a northern witch could. Go figure?
In actuality, it'the Cowardly Lion that falls asleep.


... and it's the Queen of the Field Mice and Her subjects that save the over-sized feline.

Her Majesty, the Queen of the Field Mice is one of my favorite characters in all of L. Frank Baum's books about Oz.

When I said today's posting was relevant to today's event, it's because I spent 3 hours making what normally is a 90 minute trip from Illinois. The snow, blowing and quite frigid, made anything above 30 mph impossible, especially on the state highways that criss-cross the Land of Licncoln. My shoulder blades are killing me from gripping the wheel so tightly.

I wonder if snow will show up in the new Disney film, Oz the Great and Powerful?

Spring ain't here just yet!
