The Wizard Of Oz
Although the film received largely positive reviews, it was not a box office success on its initial release, earning only $3,017,000 on a $2,777,000 budget. The film was MGM's most expensive production up to that time, but its initial release failed to recoup the studio's investment. Subsequent re-releases made up for that, however. It was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It lost that award to Gone with the Wind, but won two others, including Best Original Song for "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". The song was ranked first in both the AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs list and the Recording Industry Association of America's "365 Songs of the Century" list.
