With today’s technology, television shows and movies are more large and bold than ever before. Yet, modern movies would not be the way they are without the early pioneers of filmmaking.
Fortunately, through pioneering and consistent reruns, many classic movies have achieved cult status with the masses.
The story is set in the 19th century American South and is about the romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) by Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh).

In November of that year, the movie made its network television debut through NBC where it was shown in two parts on successive evenings.
At the time, Gone With the Wind became the highest rating TV program ever shown on a single network.
Today, Gone With the Wind can still be seen on your living room television.

The version of The Wizard of Oz that most people know and love was produced in 1939 based on the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.
The musical fantasy film stars Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale and follows the character’s adventures through Oz after fleeing her aunt and uncle’s home.
The Wizard of Oz debuted on television on November 3rd, 1956, by CBS. On December 13th, 1959, the movie was presented as a two-hour Christmas special in an earlier time slot to appeal to an even larger audience.
For about three decades, the movie was only shown once a year until the rights were given to Turner Entertainment. Since 1999, The Wizard of Oz has been shown several times a year as opposed to annually.
