Great movie. Not Jewish.

Harrietb98 says:

Why is The Wizard of Oz considered to be a Jewish film?

Did you mix up your Jewish list with your gay list? Little did Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg (both Jews) know that their song “Over the Rainbow” would become something of a gay anthem and that Judy Garland (who was not Jewish) would become a gay icon.
