The Wizard of Oz is so technically flawed that I can't help but notice all the things that go wrong. The way the Tin Man actually helps the balloon to take off or how the gatekeeper's mustache changes directions will always catch my attention but by the end I still get the warm fuzzies. Having said all that, try not to notice those gaffes and more at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's and AFI's screening of the film with a live musical score accompaniment at the Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora St., this Friday through Sunday. For tickets and showtimes, call 214-692-0203 or visit DallasSymphony.com.
