The Wizard of Oz is no doubt a classic. We all know the movie like the back of our hand. There are some fun facts that have come out about the film over the years, and also a few weirder ones…..
- The Blue and White Gingham Dress that Dorothy wears is actually Pink and White!
- The movie has been misquoted for years when it comes to the Wicked Witch. In the scene where she sends the flying monkeys off to get Dorothy, most people think she said, “Fly, Fly My Pretties!” When she actually said, “Fly, Fly Fly!”
- Professor Marvel is actually wearing Wizard Of Oz Author L. Frank Baum’s real jacket! It was purchased from a second hand store and later they found Baum’s name inside the jacket, stitched in a pocket!
- The Wicked Witch’s makeup was toxic. It was poisonous. Actress Margaret Hamilton was not allowed to eat or drink anything while in costume for fear she would ingest the makeup!
