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-ever television showing of that film, and the first theatrical film to be broadcast in its entirety on the CBS-TV network. This was not a special TV adaptation of the movie, but the movie itself. The broadcast was hosted by Bert Lahr, who played the Cowardly Lion in the film, by Justin Schiller, a 13-year old Oz book collector, and by a very young Liza Minnelli, daughter of Judy Garland.
