We're Over the Rainbow About The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary!!

As one of the most beloved films of all time celebrates it's 75th Anniversary, we are getting ready to do a bit of celebrating of our own, here at the Q!! I am very excited to present, on September 26th beginning at 9:00pm eastern, a special extravaganza of collectible, beautiful treasures inspired by the movie that has been capturing so many hearts since it debuted in 1939.  With a then unknown Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale, and her ensemble cast of unforgettable friends, who sent us all "over the rainbow"! I was one of those little kids who waited for the movie to be shown on TV just ONCE a year, sitting in a row on the sofa in my feet jammies with my brothers and sisters, eyes wide, squealing with glee when she opens the door after the tornado drops her house on the wicked witch's sister, and the magnificent colors filled the screen!! Of course, for the first few years, we didn't yet own a color TV, so the first time we saw it in color, it was beyond beauty!! My husband was and is, also a fan, and owns a pair of authentic replica ruby slippers as part of his movie memorabilia collection. I've shared a photo of them here, along with some of the other precious items from our Wizard of Oz show!



Our show will feature a lion of sorts, and while there are no life-size ruby slippers in the lineup, or tigers and bears (oh my!) for that matter, there will be SO much more to sing and dance about throughout the two hours!



The sweet toddler dolls pictured here (there's Dorothy, Lion, TinMan, Scarecrow, Glinda and of course, the "Wicked Witch", all made by Adora Dolls (Marie Osmond's doll company) from some of the finest vinyl in the world, and wearing gorgeous costumes! They are meant to be played with, by your little ones, or collected by you and they are precious!  We'll also offer a set of three of Marie's "Bitty Belle" dolls, dressed as Wizard of Oz characters, along with beautiful jewelry, watches, special Philosophy 3-in-1 gels which are exclusive to QVC, fabulous limited edition nail polish colors from Julep, inspired by the film and so much more! There will even be a Mr. Potato Head Set of 4 Wizard of Oz characters and of course, you and your kids and grandkids can mix and match the parts!!  There is so much more and I don't want to spill all the beans, but I hope you will tune in and join the fun and relive the memories of this wonderful, classic, family favorite film!



While I am a true fan of the movie, I am nowhere NEAR the expert that our guest John Fricke is, and John will be joining me for the entire show. John is a Wizard of Oz historian, and will have lots of inside stories and trivia to share with you throughout the show!


So, "follow the yellow brick road" to QVC on September 26th and join in our celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Wizard of Oz! Your ticket entitles you to watch from the comfort of your living room, since we know better than anyone (except maybe Dorothy), that "there's no place like home" for fabulous shopping!!



See you, "over the rainbow"!!
