The whole Anger Enterprise is Ozian ;-)

Freya, have you not read "Hollywood Babylon" ??

(I talked about it a length, I'd say...)

You can't see Oz in "Lucifer Rising" either ?

Isn't everyone in Hollywood, not to mention "Inauguration Of The
Pleasure Dome" sort of off to see the Wizard ? ;-)

(If you wanted a "strictly formal" chain of influence, then I'd cite
Murnau, Faust & Nosferatu; also - I'd suggest - Watson & Weber)
