The Wizard of Oz, Alphabetized
Sometimes people have strange hobbies.
A Vimeo user by the name of Matt Bucy decided he wanted to recut the entirety of the classic Judy Garland film, The Wizard of Oz. Now, recutting trailers, or even full films, isn’t that out of the ordinary in a day where editing software is available to just about everyone and you can share your (re)creations with the world in just a few clicks. But even with the proper tools, editing is a time consuming thing.
Especially when you decide you’re going to re-edit an entire film to be in proper alphabetical order.

And you have to wonder, how would this version line up with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon…
