My Top Ten Fantasy Movies by Will Johnson, freelance biographer, wjhonson@aol.com

By "fantasy" here I include movies related to magic and other types of supernatural events, but not to science fiction which I include under the "Science Fiction" heading.

Of course the number one movie on everybody's list has to be

Wizard of Oz 1939 MGM fantasy movie starring Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton and Charley Grapewin from the book by L. Frank Baum. Clara Blandick who plays "Auntie Em" was not credited in the opening credits but is named in the closing credits.

In no particular order the other nine top fantasy movies must include:

  • The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Scrooge starring Alastair Sim
