Dark Side of the Moon (1973)
Directors: Victor Fleming (color) + King Vidor (BW)
Who would have thought that Frank L. Baum's pre-fascist, anti-gold standard allegorical novel would have become a family film favorite for over 6 decades. And who would have thought that Pink Floyd would secretly re-score the film and create one of the great albums of all time. Oh, sweet irony. Here we present The Wizard of Oz (on video) synchronized to the Pink Floyd album.

With the help of the Ramones, the students of Vince Lombardi battle Miss Togar's iron-fisted rule and take their battle to a truly rockin' conclusion. Allan Arkush had started prepping Disco High, when he and Joe Dante came up with a new angle?students defy their music-hating principal and turn the schoolhouse into a madhouse!
