Return to Oz

Ok, who here remembers the movie, Return to Oz? Perhaps a better question is, who here had nightmares for weeks on end after watching Return to Oz on the Wonderful World of Disney one night during childhood? The flying monkeys in the original movie were scary enough but nothing compares to that terrible hallway of heads in the follow-up. I remember nothing about the movie except for the heads. A huge long hallway that Dorothy (even though Judy Garland will forever be the only Dorothy as far as I'm concerned) walked down that was lined with heads on either side. Creepy. So the other day we're downtown (as in Athens... not Atlanta, NYC or anywhere else exciting or semi-glamorous) walking along minding our own sweet business and I see this window display:
It's kind of hard to get the full effect given the terrible glare in the picture that resulted from the sun but nonetheless my mind immediately went back to Dorothy and the hallway of heads. So now I really need therapy and I'm sharing it with you all so we can be in the same group!

So you know what's even creepier? If you look really hard, you can see us in the reflection of the window... like we're IN the hallway of heads. Yikes. :0)

I do remember that hallway of heads. It was creepy then. Thanks for reminding me to be creeped out by heads.
