Judy Room Spotlight on The Wizard of Oz Section

The Wizard Of Oz


MGM/UA Home Video and Turner Entertainment released this amazing boxed set in 1993. It immediately became the standard by which all subsequent laser disc special editions were measured. After this set was released, companies (most notably Disney) began dipping into their vaults and releasing similar sets. In their guide to home video, "Entertainment Weekly" proclaimed ""The Ultimate Oz"" to be the best laser disc ever produced. And this was several years after "The Ultimate Oz" was released.

These accolades were completely deserved. This set has everything! A beautifully restored print of the film accompanied by a seemingly endless array of extras. This was the Ali Baba's Cave Of Wonders for Oz and Garland fans alike. For the first time, fans were able to see and/or hear such rarities as: Tornado Test Footage; Deleted Scenes; Judy Garland's deleted "Over The Rainbow" reprise; Footage from the Los Angeles and New York premieres; Aljean Harmetz's 1979 interviews with Margaret Hamilton, Ray Bolger, and Jack Haley; Clips from two silent versions of Oz; A clip from the rare 1933 cartoon short version; A portrait gallery; Sketches and story boards; Costume and make-up tests; All of the existing trailers; AND MORE!

In spite of all of these treasures, the big boon, especially for us here at The Judy Garland Online Discography, was the premiere release of the pre-recording sessions. Hours worth of outtakes, alternate takes, and extended versions of all of the songs and music underscoring. Even the Munchkin voices at normal speed! By far this was truly "The Ultimate Oz".

Obviously, we list it here in our Discography because of these alternate audio tracks. Prior to the deluxe 2-CD release, and subsequent DVD releases, this was the only source for these recordings. Even after the aforementioned releases and the 1999 DVD release, much of this material was still only available on this laser set. Now, with the 2005 release of the film newly restored via Warner Brother's amazing Ultra Resolution process, "The Ultimate Oz" can now be enjoyed again. Although it's not called "The Ultimate Oz", the 2005 3-disc DVD special edition contains everything "The Ultimate Oz" does, plus more. The 2005 additions are mostly visual, including the complete silent film versions, new mini-documentaries, as well as the audio-only complete Oz radio broadcast. Regrettably, the new DVD does not contain the notes about the prerecordings as detailed in the guide (shown above) and transcribed below.

Feature Disc One - Side One (Analog Right)
Over The Rainbow
Judy Garland
Recorded 10/7/38. Arranged by Murray Cutter. The version heard in the film was edited together by taking the first verse of take 5 and joining it to the bulk of take 6
2019 1
Munchkinland - Part One
Rehearsal with Harold Arlen & E.Y. "Yip" Harburg
Munchkin Musical Sequence - Arranged by Leo Arnaud. Munchkinland is the longest and most complex musical sequence in the film. We present the songs as they were recorded. As you will hear, most of the munchkin vocal parts are missing. This is because the voices of the munchkins were recorded separately from the music and the separate tracks were mixed together later. At the end of the music section, we will present the actual munchkin loops recorded by Ken Darby on a special optical film recorder developed by Douglas Shearer, head of the M-G-M sound department. Also note that the order in which the parts are presented is not the final order in which they appear on film, but rather as the parts were originally sequenced when orchestrated.
(Scene 2033) - Take 2 - This recording features composer Harold Arlen and lyricist "Yip" Harburg enacting all of the singing and speaking parts for this sequence. This was a rehearsal track made for choreographer Bobby Connolly.

Munchkin Musical Sequence
Part One
Takes 10-14 - "Come out, come out, wherever your are..." Billie Burke did fourteen takes of the opening song for this sequence. For Protection, M-G-M engaged singer Lorainne Bridges to also record Glinda's song. These tracks no longer exist and rest assured that the takes included in the finished film are none other than Billie Burke's.

Munchkin Voices
Vocal Loops for the Munchkin Voices - Here we present several of the tracks recorded by Ken Darby for this sequence. Darby had the singers sing slowly and distinctly, in an adjusted key. These tracks were recorded at a slower speed than normal, but played back at the normal speed of 90 feet per minute. This process was used to make the voices sound like the munchkins. As an added feature, at the end of this section are several of these tracks, played back at the same speed at which they were recorded, thus giving the listener the opportunity to hear exactly how these parts were sung. You may notice a certain familiarity in Pinto Colveg's voice. For many years he was none other than the voice of Walt Disney's Goofy.
(Scene #2079) - Unused track intended to replace the voices featured in Part Four. Harry Stanton and Virgil Johansen are the voices.
2079 44
Munchkin Voices
Take 3 - Recorded at 55 feet per minute - unused mayor, town father's and coroner's voice tracks. Note that here the parts are sung, whereas in the final film they are almost spoken.

2011 48
If I Only Had A Heart Dance (Orchestra)
Takes 1-3 - Dance music. Note that in the finished film, the mid-section was deleted. Perfectionists are not easily pleased, as clearly shown by Mr. Stoll's declaration of "That stinks!" after take 1.
2013 52
If I Only Had A Heart End Tag 2553 56
If I Only Had A Heart Jack Haley
Takes 21 & 22 - Jack Haley's rendition of If I Only Had A Heart, minus Adriana Caselotti's solo. This was edited in later from the earlier Ebsen session.

2027 19
The Merry Old Land Of Oz Piano Tempo
Bolger, Garland, Haley, Lahr and Morgan. Arranged by Cutter. This number was another instance of M-G-M recording the vocals separately to a piano track for filming, then adding the full orchestra in the post-scoring sessions. The various men's and women's voices are: Tyler Brook, Ralph Sudam, Bobby Watson, Oliver Smith, Charles Irwin, Lois January, Elivda Rizzo and Lorraine Bridges.
(Scene #2108) - Take 4 - The note says "Tempo track...played by four hands on piano. Becker on top, Arlen on bottom."

2020 32

2001 49
The Jitterbug - Part One .. 2014 53
The Jitterbug - Part One Orchestra Only 2014 58
The Jitterbug - Part Two .. 2015 60
The Jitterbug - Part Three .. 2016 65
Over The Rainbow Deleted Reprise
Take 3 - This is the deleted reprise sung by Dorothy while she is a captive of the Wicked Witch of the West. The recording was done live on the set to a piano accompaniment, with the orchestra to be added later. The record date of this track is October 17, 1938, thus placing it during Director Richard Thorpe's reign. The Victor Fleming re-do does not survive, so the underscoring for this scene does not match this live performance.
2029 70
Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead Emerald City Reprise - Take 1 - One version of the deleted song sequence. 2123 73
Emerald City Reprise - 2 Versions
Take 6 - A full orchestral counterpoint version.
2560 73
Hail The Witch Is Dead Winkie Voice Test

2143 76

Supplementary Disc - Side One (Analog Right)

The Underscoring - The background music for The Wizard of Oz won the Academy Award for best original score (1939). The composers of this underscoring used Arlen's song melodies to create a seamless continual flow of music that lasts almost the entire length of the film. Although many of the scenes in the finished film do not have underscoring, music had actually been created for some, and you will hear that music here for the first time. We have highlighted cues that have something unique or anecdotal about them as compared with the final versions heard in the film.
Main Title Alternate Version
Composed by Herbert Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter.
(Scene #2525) - Take 7 - An alternate take of the main title without the choir.
2525 1
Main Title Revised Ending
Takes 1-3 - The revised ending for the main title.
2586 4
Trouble In School Composed by Stothart and George Bassman and orchestrated by Bassman.
(Scene #2563) - Take 2 - The last portion of this was deleted, along with the accompanying dialogue.
2563 5
Farmyard Wild Track (unused)
Takes 1 & 2 - Unused wild track for the farmyard. The notes state "last part Trouble in School."
2564 9
Introduction to Rainbow .. 2513 13
Miss Gulch Composed and orchestrated by Cutter.
Take 2 - The original intention here was to have the underscoring continue through the parlor scene, but it was dropped in the final editing.
2514 16
Leaving Home .. 2564 19
Crystal Gazing Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Bassman.
Take 3 - Note the strains of Merry Old Land of Oz foreshadowing Professor Marvel's reincarnation in Oz.
2515 20
Cyclone Composed by "Stothart et al" and orchestrated by Bassman.
Take 7 - Perhaps the most complex underscoring in the film, it was also recorded by an orchestra twice the normal size. This is the "far mike" pick-up channel, and it is the only one that survives. Longer here than in the finished film, this music was to have scored an extended scene.
2526 24
Munchkinland Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Bassman. 2505 28
Munchkinland With Voices 2505 31
Munchkinland Insert
Take 10 - Insert for Glinda's arrival.
2578 34
I'm Not A Witch Unused
Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter.
(Scene #2506) - Takes 3 & 4 - The original concept for this piece was much darker.
2506 37
I'm Not A Witch Revised
Take 2 - The much lighter, revised version of this cue.
2579 39
Threatening Witch
Part One
Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter.
(Scene #2507) - Takes 1-3
2507 41
Threatening Witch - New Take 6 - A new ending for the above cue. 2587 42
Threatening Witch
Part Two
Take 2 - One of the casualties of the final editing was some of the Wicked With of the West's dialogue. In previews, her character was found to be too terrifying for children, so several of her most menacing lines were removed. Therefore, you will hear in several of the"witch's scenes" unfamiliar bits of music. 2508 43
Leaving Munchkinland .. 2580 46
Good Fairy Vanishes - Segue
Follow The Yellow Brick Road
Composed by Harold Arlen and Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter. 2511 47
The Cornfield Composed by Stothart, Bassman and George Stoll and orchestrated by Bassman. 2504 50
Scarecrow to Visit Wizard Unused
Composed by Stothart, Bassman and Stoll and orchestrated by Bassman.
(Scene #2554) - Takes 1-4 - Unused scoring for the cornfield scene, immediately preceding We're Off to See The Wizard.
2554 52
The Apple Orchard Composed by Stothart, Bassman and Stoll and orchestrated by Bassman.
Take 6 - Longer than in the final film due to the deletion of some of the fight with the apple trees.
2551 54
Introduction To Tin Man Composed by Stothart. 2552 57
Tag To Tin Man .. 2553 59
Witch On Roof .. 2555 61
Woodman's Lament (Beehive)
Part One
Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter.
Takes 1 & 2 - This is the music for the deleted "beehive" scene, in which the Witch's curse to the Tin Man is realized.
2538 62
Woodman's Lament (Beehive)
Part Two
Take 2 - The first half of this cue was to underscore the dialogue when the Tin Man realizes he has accidentally killed one of the bees. The sad, maudlin strains of If I Only Had a Heart are echoed by the whine of a saw. 2539 63
[Into the] Forest Of Wild Beasts Introduction
Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter.
Take 4 - "Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh, my!"
2540 64
Lion's Confession Unused
Composed by Stothart, Stoll and Bassman and orchestrated by Bassman.
Takes 2 & 3 - Deleted underscoring for the scene in which the Cowardly Lion explains his fate to Dorothy & co.
2565 66
Poppies Orchestra Only
Composed by Robert Stringer and orchestrated by Cutter.
2527 71

Orchestra With Chorus

2528 71
The Spell Composed by Stringer and orchestrated by Cutter.
Take 5 - This is another cue that offers previously unheard sections. The feverous strings during the midsection were to have scored a scene between the Witch and Nikko, her faithful companion. Seeing that her plan is working, she sends Nikko to fetch the golden wishing cap. The cap is sued to call for the Winged Monkeys, whom the Witch will send to the poppy field to claim the ruby slippers. Glinda interferes with the plan though, and in a later scene, the Witch tosses away the cap in utter frustration.
2530 75
Supplementary Disc - Side One (Digital Right)
Optimistic Voices Rehearsal
Composed by Arlen, Harburg and Stothart.
Arlen, Roger Edens and Harburg at the piano again for a rehearsal recording.
2055 1

2529 2
Optimistic Voices Orchestra 2529A 3
Sign On The Gate
Part One
Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Paul Marquardt.
Takes 1-4 - Unused underscoring.
2541 6
Sign On The Gate
Part Two
.. 2542 10
Change Of The Guard Unused
Composed by Stothart and Bassman and orchestrated by Bassman.
Takes 1 & 2 - Unused due to scene being deleted.
2548 12
Wizard's Exit .. 2549 14
At The Gates Of The Emerald City Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Stringer.
Take 3 - Much longer than in the final film. Please refer to your continuity script for the deleted sections.
[Judy Room note: A deluxe copy of the continuity script came with this boxed set.]
2543 15
Magic Smoke Chords .. 2544 18
Terrified Lion .. 2545 21
The Haunted Forest Composed by Stothart, Stoll and Bassman and orchestrated by Bassman.
Take 5 - The light mid-portion of this cue refers to a bit of trickery deleted from the final print. The "Witch Remover" the Lion carries mysteriously vanishes when the Scarecrow tosses it to the ground. The end of this piece was to have lead into the Jitterbug sequence, also deleted from the film.
2533 22
Jitterbugs Attack (Flight Of Winged Monkeys) Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Marquardt.
Take 2 - Slightly longer than in the finished film.
2534 27
Witch's Castle

Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Marquardt and Cutter.
Take 3 - The editing of this sequence of the film was different when the film was scored.

2535 29
Witch's Castle Insert 2577 33
Toto Brings News Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Stringer.
Take 7 - This cue contains the underscoring for the deleted reprise of Over the Rainbow.
2536 36
March Of The Winkies Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter.
Take 9 - Without the Winkie vocals.
2532 41
Dorothy's Rescue Composed by Stothart, incorporating Moussorgsky, and orchestrated by Marquardt.
Take 6 - The original recording of this cue contains even more Night On Bald Mountain than does the finished film.
2531 45
On The Castle Wall .. 2537 48
Wizard's Expose/Graduation Exercises Composed by Bassman, Stothart and Stoll and orchestrated by Bassman.
Take 1 - This cue contains music that was to cover the deleted scenes of the Wizard trying to distract Dorothy & co.
2566 51
Fill In Awards .. 2581 55
Floating Thru Space/Balloon Ascension .. 2546 56
Second Cheer .. 2547 61
I Hereby Decree .. 2556 63
Glinda's Final Appearance Revised 2582 67
Finale Composed by Stothart and orchestrated by Cutter. 2561 69
