The WIZ is an EXCELLENT black adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. It is a LONG movie, so expect to be planted in front of your TV enjoying this wonderful movie with a hot cup of hot chocolate. Diana, Michael, Nipsey, Ted, etc., are all great! Although the description mentions appearances by Luther Vandross and Roberta Flack, I did not see them in this movie, so perhaps that information is erroneous. I always make it a tradition to watch The WIZ during the holidays. A great throwback movie to the late 1970s. The score by Charlie Smalls is absolutely beautiful. I believe this movie deserves 5 stars for such beautiful scenery and sets, especially for the late 70s. (I don't know why people rate movies based on their bad experience with shipping or returns, as the other reviewer did here giving it only 1 star. They need to rate the movie NOT their transaction!) Nonetheless, adults as well as children will enjoy this movie immensely. It's a pleasure to watch again and again! :) (PS-Be sure to watch for ultra-talented mega-producer Quincy Jones on the 20-foot grand piano during the dance sequence section in the middle of the movie--he turns around and smiles at the camera!)

Wrong item was shipped to us. We order the Blu-ray and received the regular DVD. Not offered any compensation for Overstock's error and we have to pay someone to take the return to the UPS because of our mobility issues. Now, this is the first time this has happened to us, but we are very frustrated. Thank you.
