10 Things You Never Noticed About The Wizard Of Oz [VIDEO]
One of my daughter's favorite movies is "The Wizard Of Oz", in fact, we went to see "The Wizard Of Oz: An IMAX 3-D Experience" version a few months ago. But, as much as we think we know about this classic film, there are 10 things we may not have noticed. Check this out!
"Since Oz is about to celebrate its 75th anniversary next year, here's a fun peek at a few details that may have escaped the attention of even the most ardent Ozophiles.
1. Dorothy's Cruller. Just before singing "Over the Rainbow," Dorothy takes one of the "just fried" crullers Aunt Em offers the farmhands. She takes a small bite, tosses a piece to Toto and from there it seems to vanish. But watch closely, she's still holding it as she begins to sing and at the beginning of the second verse, she tosses the remainder into the barnyard (hopefully Toto saw it!).
2. Miss Gulch's Umbrella. As Miss Gulch pulls up to the Gale farmhouse, you can see an umbrella strapped to the front of her bicycle. This is an "insider" allusion to the water allergy of her Ozian alter ego, the Wicked Witch of the West. In the original L. Frank Baum book, the Witch carries an umbrella, not a broom."
