For its final broadcast, on November 3, 1956, Ford Star Jubilee abandoned its usual format of presenting live shows, and lengthened its time slot to two hours, in order to broadcast The Wizard of Oz (1939). The first television showing of that movie, and the first theatrical movie to be broadcast in its entirety on CBS. This was not a special television adaptation of the movie. The broadcast was hosted by Bert Lahr, who played the Cowardly Lion in the movie, by Justin Schiller, a thirteen-year-old Oz book collector, and by a very young Liza Minnelli, daughter of Judy Garland.
