The Wizard of Oz (1939) +
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.
