In the late-eighties, thanks to my youngest daughter’s obsession with Indiana Jones, I began to notice a leitmotif running through Spielberg’s films. Hah! There were the flying monkeys…the chanting soldiers in furry hats…even Nazis melting.   “Oh, what a world!”

It soon became a game: Can you spot the “Wizard of Oz moments in Spielberg’s films?

I offer it up to you, whether you are a movie buff, a Spielberg admirer, or just a fan of a story whose “kindly philosophy never goes out of fashion.”
