    Jack Haley plus his fellow actors in the Wizard of Oz have helped to establish a family tradition for us. The influence of this great movie has become a staple in our lives. It was one of my favorites when I was growing up and I am now in my 70s. My own son and daughter use to sit on my lap and we could sing right along with it as well as do the dialogue. It is now a part of my grandsons life as well and he is only three and a half years old. Thanks for the memories Jack.
