The Wizard Of Oz
· Dorothy and Toto arrive in Oz and meet the Munchkins. During one part of their song and dance routine, they give Dorothy a lollipop and flowers. But when the Wicked Witch arrives, Dorothy can be seen holding both items in some views and just the flowers in others. During some portions of the scene, she’s holding neither!
· If you watch Dorothy closely when she starts walking down the yellow brick road, you’ll notice her hair becomes longer by the time she meets the Scarecrow!
· Dorothy and the Scarecrow meet the Tin Man when suddenly the Wicked Witch of the West arrives. The Wicked Witch of the West throws fire at the scarecrow and then disappears. Scarecrow falls to Dorothy’s left while the Tin Man is on her right side. But when they stand up a couple moments later, the Tin Man is now on her left and the Scarecrow is now on her right.
· The Tin Man sits down on a tree trunk. Dorothy’s basket has his oil can in it but it can be seen falling out and onto the yellow brick road. In the very next view, however, the oil can is back in the basket.
· When the foursome reach Emerald City, the Cowardly Lion starts a song and dance number. During the scene, the Tin Man makes a crown out of a ceramic flower pot and places it on the Lion’s head. In the very next close-up view, the crown has changed position. Also, when the guard tells them to go away, the crown fall from the Cowardly Lion’s head and bounces on the ground instead of breaking! Something else to look for during this scene is during the Cowardly Lion’s solo, after the crown has been placed on his head, you can see the white vertical wire behind him that swishes his tail back and forth.
· Dorothy, Scarecrow, The Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Toto are walking through the Haunted Forest. The Cowardly Lion is carrying a net and mallet. He’s still carrying them when he tries to run away but in the very next view of him, they’re gone!
