OK, we've all seen it a hundred times, but it's still a marvellous sight as Judy Garland's Dorothy sets off down the Yellow brick Road with Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion. And the songs are great too.
And it's a true story that MGM studio bigwigs wanted to lose Somewhere Over the Rainbow - they thought it brought the film to a standstill. It won an Oscar.
With Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Frank Morgan, Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton, Charley Grapewin and Clara Blandick. (1939)
Back To The Future, Part III
The rousing conclusion to the time-travel epic has Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly joining Christopher Lloyd's loveable Doc Brown in the Old West. Cue a string of Clint Eastwood gags (that's the name Marty adopts after arriving in the unfriendly frontier township). More humour than Part II and the effects are well up to scratch but the novelty is now near exhaustion point. With Mary Steenburgen, Thomas F. Wilson, Lea Thompson, Elisabeth Shue, Matt Clark and Richard Dysart. (1990)

Sky Movie Max, 11.55pm - 2.15am
