HERE'S A LIST OF A BUNCH OF BLOOPERS AND SILLINESS THAT MADE IT INTO THE MOVIE!!
There's a LOT more than this list...
If you know of any others, please tell us!!
Why is Dorothy perfectly clean after having fallen into a pig sty?
"Over the Rainbow" seems to have been put together from at least two different takes. After a cut down to Toto, Dorothy's
make-up is subtly different.
What kind of flowers are on the wallpaper in
Dorothy's room? Poppies.
The backdrop behind Professor Marvel's caravan was
reused as the
backyard of Tara where Ashley is splitting logs in
"Gone with the Wind."
During the cyclone, Dorothy's bed spins around, but
the table and linens
by the window stay perfectly still.
When Glinda's bubble arrives, Dorothy's hand sticks
into it for a brief
As the Munchkins "Come out, come out," wherever they
are, one climbs out
of a manhole. Later, however, the manhole is nowhere
to be seen. Also,
some of the doors are even shorter than the Munchkins,
and the actors have
to duck to get in and out of the houses.
The death certificate of the Wicked Witch of the
East tells that the
Witch died on May 6th, 1938 -- nineteen years to the
day after L. Frank
Baum died. (This can't be read by watching The Movie,
only in publicity stills.)
Terry must have been freaked out by the Witch's
entrance, because Toto runs off and hides among the Munchkins. Dorothy has to leave Glinda's side on the steps and go get the dog.
In the Munchkin city scene, a few "Munchkins" scream
before the Witch comes blazing in with her red smoke. ESP, I think not! :o) - Contributed by: Nmyph##@****.com - THANKS!!
Note Dorothy's pigtails as she leaves Munchkinland
and meets the Scarecrow. They keep growing and shrinking about six
inches throughout the scene!
At the end of "If I Only Had a Heart," the oilcan bounces out of
Dorothy's basket, and she never gets a chance to retrieve it. Good thing she has a spare in the next scene...
Not far from the Tin Man's cottage, in the background, you can see
another Oz character, the Sawhorse (first introduced in "The Marvelous
Land of Oz").
Right after the Wicked Witch disappears from atop
the cottage, somehow
the Tin Man is reversed (look at the ring on his
funnel hat) and
everything is fuzzy. Because the beehive sequence was
edited out, this
part of the scene was reversed and processed from the
wrong side so as to
keep the three characters in the correct order
When Dorothy first meets the Lion, Judy Garland had
a TERRIBLE time not
cracking up at Bert Lahr's antics. Even in the take
used in the finished
film, she nearly loses it before blurting out, "My
goodness, what a fuss
In several scenes, the fishline holding up the
Lion's tail is visible.
In the Emerald City, the purple version of the Horse
of a Different
Color seems to be trying its darnedest to lick the
color off (the horses
were all colored with Jell-O).
In getting their makeovers, the Tin Man, who's been
rusty all this time,
is now well polished, the Lion gets a permanent and a
bow for his mane,
and Dorothy gets not only a new hairstyle, but a
subtly more puffed up
During this sequence, they wrap the rug around him and break a flowerpot with the ax to make his crown. After a few minutes, the lion turns quickly and the crown falls off, the only problem is, it bounces.
The guardian at the gates of the palace has his
mustache turned up when
our friends approach him -- but then it suddenly turns
During "King of the Forest," Bert Lahr can be heard
singing after the
instrumental bridge, even though the Lion's mouth
isn't moving right away.
Neat trick, that. Also, his "crown" in the close-ups
is different than the
one placed on his head in a long shot. Oh, and Dorothy
trips on the red
Climbing the rocks to the Witch's castle, the Tin
Woodman hangs on to
the Lion's tail at one point -- where you can see the
outline of a board
or something reinforcing the Lion's costume. The Lion
looks like he has a
After rescuing Dorothy from the room the Witch has
trapped her in, our
friends try to leave the castle, only to have the door
slam in their
faces. In the long shot, the order is (from left to
right) the Scarecrow,
Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Lion. But when the scene
cuts to a close-up,
Dorothy and the Tin Man have mysteriously swapped
places. (One sharp-eyed
correspondent noticed a similar switch in the Wizard's
When the Scarecrow chops down the chandelier in the
Witch's castle, the
candles blow out. But only moments later, the candles
are lit again.
When Dorothy first takes the Witch's broomstick, the
burnt bristles are
all ragged and uneven. But it looks like they've had
some time to trim and
straighten them by the time they give it to the
How does the Wizard's balloon leave so easily after
Toto chases that
cat? The Tin Woodman is undoing the ropes! (Maybe this
is his way of
telling Dorothy to give back his oil can, since she
still has it as she's
about to leave.)
