Cavalcade of the Academy Awards (extra on The Wizard of Oz DVD (Warner Bros.)). [Category: Hollywood]

Excerpts from a short about the 1939 Academy Awards, featuring the awards won by The Wizard of Oz. Judy Garland is presented with the award for Best Performance by a Juvenile Actress, and she is asked to sing “Over the Rainbow,” but instead of continuing to her song, the film switches to Garland singing the song in the movie, which is curious. I sure wish they had put the whole film on the DVD, rather than just these brief excerpts.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
