A Russian writer adapted "The Wizard of Oz" for Russian children. Dorothy was re-named Allie, and Toto could talk. He later wrote 5 more books about the adventures of Allie, her sister Annie, Toto, Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion. As far as I know, this book was never translated back into English. See more...

The Wizard of Oz (1939) - 312 mistakes
Plot hole: In the scene where the Wicked Witch is furious because Dorothy and pals have been saved from the poppy field, the Flying Monkey hands her a golden cap. She then dashes the cap across the room. The golden cap is used in the book to summon the Flying Monkeys. They shot scenes involving use of the cap, edited them out, but left this one with the cap inexplicably being tossed about.
Character mistake: Picky point, but hey, that's what this site is about. When the Wicked Witch is dying, you hear her screaming "I'm melting, I'm melting". She really isn't melting. She is changing from the solid state to the gaseous state, which is sublimation. Therefore, she is sublimating. Melting is changing from the solid state to the liquid state.
Continuity: In the scene when they discover the Wizard behind the curtain there is a change in the equipment on his wall. At first the big lit up gauge thing with the two levers above it is lit, about a minute later when the Scarecrow gets his diploma the angle has changed and the gauge thing is dark.
Continuity: After the talking trees throw their apples at Dorothy she walks up a small hill and finds the Tin Man. If you look behind her there's a house across the Yellow Brick Road. We just saw this exact same spot in the previous shot as they were being pelted with the apples and the house is not there.
