The Wiz

When shy Harlem school teacher Dorothy (Diana Ross) chases her dog Toto into a snowstorm, she's whisked off by a whirlwind to the Land of Oz, a fantastical version of New York City. Together with the Scarecrow (Michael Jackson), the Tin Man (Nipsey Russell), and the Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross), they ease on down the road toward the Emerald City to meet the all-powerful Wiz (Richard Pryor) and defeat the Wicked Witch of the West (Mabel King).
