Comments:
A biography exploring the life of lyricist Yip Harburg. Yip was a master craftsman, a poet, a Broadway luminary, and a social activist. He was also responsible for not only the songs of the Wizard of Oz, but also for shaping the arc and details of the final script and story. Yip was funny, clever, and deeply committed to social justice. His political views and associations led to his blacklisting in the 1950s. But he never recanted his views or named names, maintaining a strong sense of freedom and love for his country.
