Corrected entry: When The Scarecrow says that he can be released from the pole by 'Turning that nail', the pole holding him up is briefly shown - it's obvious that the pole goes up *inside* his jacket - therefore, he couldn't fall down & forward to be free of the pole; the best he could do is fall to the ground with a pole up the back of his shirt.

Correction: The pole is not up under his shirt - he's held up by wires.


Corrected entry: When Aunt Em is taking the chicks out of the incubator and putting them in Uncle Henry's hat, you can see that she is just pretending and there is nothing in her hands. (00:02:35)

Correction: She puts them in her apron and she actually has chicks in her hand.


Corrected entry: When the Cowardly Lion sings to Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, "If I only had the nerve", the three all look over to the Lion and listen to him sing. Each time after the Lion sings a line, he pauses and Dorothy looks over at the Tin Man and the Scarecrow. If you watch closely, she slightly nods her head, almost like she's giving them the cue to get ready to gallop, which they all do after each pause. Also, if you pay close attention, when Dorothy looks over to the Tin Man and the Scarecrow to give them the cue to gallop she looks unsure, like she may be doing something that's not in the script, and at one point bites her lip.

Correction: This is a stretch, and I don't see it.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Dorothy tells the scarecrow that he can go with her to see the wizard he yells "Hooray." If you listen closely you can hear him say 'hooray' quietly few seconds before this but his mouth isn't moving.

Correction: The audio here is not overdubbed and this doesn't happen.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Dorothy starts at the beginning of the yellow brick road, which is a spiral, at her second revolution, you can see the Mayor in the scene to the right. As Dorothy gets near the low huts the scene switches. As she goes out of town, you see the Mayor again alongside the road on the right.

Correction: He had plenty of time to get there.


Corrected entry: Sam's coat is unbuttoned (with no tobacco pouch string showing) when he enters his office foyer the day after Archer's murder, but in the next shot (when Archer's widow calls to him) it becomes buttoned in order to hide the string to his tobacco pouch, which he unbuttons and reaches for in a later shot when reviewing the case with Effie.

Correction: The ten seconds that elapses as we see Iva Archer leave the office is plenty of time for him to un-button his jacket.


10 seconds is enough time, but why button an unbutton coat just to unbutton it 10 seconds later?

Corrected entry: As Ann Archer is walking in the kitchen before the famous revealing of the bunny in the pot, look closely behind her and in the window you can see something moving slowly outside that looks like a crane.

Erika Medina

Correction: It is a garbage truck.
