Judy Garland Paper Dolls

When I was in elementary school at Mingo, one of the local television stations would broadcast The Wizard of Oz on Easter weekend. I don’t know what TWOO has to do with Jesus’ resurrection, but there it is.

This was way before personal movie collections, video rental, cable television or even home video recorders. If you wanted to watch something, then you’d better catch it when it was broadcast because it might take a long, long time to have a chance to see it again.

We didn’t even get to see It’s a Wonderful Life every Christmas.

But we did get to see The Wizard of Oz every Easter.

And if you were blessed enough to have a friend like Mary Jane Matthews, you got to watch it in color. (Mary Jane was a bright and lovely girl in her own right, quite aside from having a color television).

This set of Judy Garland paper dolls are from the book Glamorous Movie Stars of the Thirties Paper Dolls, by Tom Tierney, 1978.

Unfortunately, a few years ago I wrote the year of each movie under the title and it looks a bit messy.
