At the Movies
Thanksgiving-time showings of The Wizard of Oz on network TV
(1959-67 on CBS, 1968-75 on NBC, then on CBS again)
This, of course, was before VHS tapes, DVDs, cable movie networks, and
Blockbuster Video. You couldn't go out and rent any movie you felt like,
but had to be content with whatever the three TV networks and the local
independent stations chose to put on the air... And the networks didn't
show a whole lot of movies, each airing perhaps one prime-time movie weekly.
