NEW YORK - NEW YORK (AP) — "The Wizard of Oz" is a family favorite, but the film — celebrating it's 70th anniversary this year — isn't on Liza Minnelli's must-watch list.
Minnelli says it's tough to watch because of the fictional horrors her mother, Judy Garland, endures.
She said: "I just loved her so and for some reason 'The Wizard of Oz' bothers me when I see it. They do terrible things to her. ... That's 'cause it's my mom."
Minnelli reflected on "The Wizard of Oz" while reflecting on her special, "Liza's At The Palace." It captures her 2008 Tony-winning play and airs on public television stations this month.
The show ran more than two hours. When asked how she managed such a pace, the 63-year-old said: "You leave your pain shoes at the side of the stage."
