History of the day for March 26

In 1863, the script and storyline for the film, The Wizard of Oz, was finally completed after 17 years of mindbreaking labor on the parts of Hollywood screenwriters. Sadly, the writers would have to wait another 40 years for the invention of the film camera and projector before movies could be made at all, and another 20 years on top of that for the necessary special effects technology, that of genetically engineering flying monkeys and green-haired midgets, before the filming could really get off the ground. By the way, did you notice the pun? Flying monkeys and get off the ground! I am a genius.

I'm beginning to thing that this is not real history at all, that you are just making this up as you go... Please cite your sources.

sassafras: yay!

sombrero: the computer wouldn't appreciate those accusations.

I wonder how many more years it was 'til someone on a stellar acid trip discovered that you could play Pink Floyd's The Wall album backwards in sync to the motion picture... to find an all new slant on Dorothy's adventures.

Inquiring minds (that fully enjoyed their brain cell-depleting years) want to know.

That was probably the year that the wall came out.

in fact the day after the wall came out, I bet someone tried to watch the wizard of oz with the wall playing backwards as the soundtrack.
