The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the sequence where Dorothy meets the Scarecrow, Dorothy's pigtails are first short (above her shoulders) and as the song progresses her hair gets longer (below her shoulders), then short, and then long again.

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Dorothy and Scarecrow are fighting with the trees, Scarecrow says "I'll show you how to get apples" and he gets hit by the apples. In the very next shot, a quick view of Dorothy reveals she is wearing black shoes, not her ruby slippers.

Revealing mistake: When the Lion is pulling up the Tin Man with his tail on the way to the castle, you can see a square block inside the Lion's costume to hold the tail on.

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Wizard is about to bestow 'awards', the Scarecrow is lined up second from the left as the Wizard begins to speak. In the next shot while the Wizard is still speaking, the Scarecrow 'jumps' to the far right.

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the start of the "lions and tigers and bears, oh my" sequence, Dorothy, the Scarecrow and Tin Man are all standing separately, then the shot cuts and they're suddenly arm in arm.

Continuity mistake: When trying to escape the Witch's castle, the big doors close, and the gang stands in a line and starts banging on the doors. Between shots Dorothy and the Tin-man switch sides.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When the Tin Man is attacked by six flying monkeys they take away his axe. Several seconds later he has it again.

????

Visible crew/equipment: Glinda sends Dorothy off saying, "Just follow the Yellow Brick Road" and Dorothy walks through the shadow of the camera's crane.

????

Revealing mistake: Soon after Dorothy slaps the Cowardly Lion, she looks as though she is about to laugh out loud. This happens about 10 seconds or so after the slap. She even tries to put Toto in front of her face to cover up her smirking.

Continuity mistake: The Wicked Witch leaves Dorothy and runs to grab the hourglass. The mortar and pestle on the left of the hourglass disappear between shots.

????

Revealing mistake: When everyone is still in the poppy field, after the snowstorm, Dorothy says "Look. Emerald City is closer and prettier than ever." Look behind the Lion just as Dorothy says the word "City" and you'll see that the wire attached to his tail brushes over the top of some of the poppies, knocking the snow off.

Jeff Swanson

Character mistake: While singing the "If I Were King" song, the Lion asks, "What makes the Sphinx the Seventh Wonder?" The Sphinx is not one of the Seven Wonders of the World; its neighbour the Great Pyramid of Giza is. Besides, how would the residents of Oz know about our Seven Wonders of the World?

Audio problem: When Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Tinman are in the forest where they find Lion, the first time Dorothy says "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my" her mouth doesn't move at first but when the camera cuts to the next shot her mouth finishes the phrase.

Continuity mistake: When Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion are marching into the Wicked Witch's castle after taking the guards' uniforms, all three of them are shown holding the same types of spears as the guards, so when they go rescue Dorothy out of the locked room and Tin Man chops through the door with his axe, where did the axe come from?

Visible crew/equipment: When the Scarecrow says, " Did I scare you?" the camera's shadow can be seen on Dorothy's face.

????
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As the chandelier falls on the guards at the witch's castle, all the candles are blown out by the time it lands. The next shot shows some of them relit.

Continuity mistake: Immediately after Dorothy throws the water onto the witch, there is a long shot of the group as they observe the Wicked Witch beginning to melt. In this shot you can see that the Scarecrow's arm is still on fire, yet nothing is done about it as they all focus on the Witch. In the next full shot of the Scarecrow the fire is completely out.

Continuity mistake: The pole that the Scarecrow was on moves out in front of the corn at the end of the scene as Dorothy and the Scarecrow run off and sing, "We're off to see the Wizard".

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy's hair is long and almost straight in some shots and short and curly when the camera pans back to her. This happens throughout the movie.

Revealing mistake: When the Lion runs out of the Wizard's room, the group disappears because it is an obvious backdrop.

Sacha
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After the Tin Man's dance, Dorothy and the Scarecrow shuffle over to a tree trunk where the Tin Man then sits. During this, the oil can in Dorothy's basket clearly falls out, but in the very next shot it is back in the basket.

Visible crew/equipment: When Dorothy first walks on the pigsty the shadow of the boom mike can be seen moving on the bottom left of the screen.

????

Continuity mistake: The rope around the Scarecrow's neck is tied differently throughout the scene after he meets Dorothy. The rag around his hat is rearranged also.

????

Continuity mistake: The blue shirted Lollipop Guilder comes from around the fallen house at the beginning of "Come Out Come Out," but he immediately appears emerging from a jet black manhole (with a black lip where the cover goes) in middle of the yellow brick in front of the house.

Revealing mistake: During the Lion's song of, "If I only had the nerve." You can see the cameraman's shadow pass over Dorothy, the Lion, and then the log on the side of the road. Watch carefully, it comes back.

Other mistake: When entering the Haunted Forest, the Scarecrow is carrying a pistol and a stick, the Lion has a bug sprayer and net, the Tin Man has a monkey wrench and his axe. But different scenes after that shows some items missing and then returning. I guess in the insect scene that was cut, they lost all those things but the axe.

Continuity mistake: After Dorothy pulls the Tin Man's arm down we see her throw the apple that she's holding down behind him. In the next shot it reappears in her left hand.

????

Continuity mistake: As the four go through the green doors to see the Wizard the hallway triples in length between shots.

????

Continuity mistake: In the poppy field Dorothy falls down with the basket at her side. No one touches it but in the close-up it's by her head.

????

Visible crew/equipment: As Dorothy and the Scarecrow dance off and sing, "We're off to see the Wizard" moving spot lights and equipment shadows can be seen on the grass on the right of the Yellow Brick Road.

????

Continuity mistake: After Dorothy falls into the pig sty Zeke holds his left hand over the right side of his chest. In the next shot his hand is over the left side of his chest.

????

Visible crew/equipment: As the talking trees throw their apple's at Dorothy and the Scarecrow, look closely at the upper right hand side of the screen. An off camera crew member is shaking one of the trees back and forth as all of the others stand motionless.

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy throws water at the Wicked Witch not knowing it will melt her. If you look closely the witch is drenched when it hits her but in the next close up shot she doesn't have a drop of water on her.

????

Continuity mistake: In the beginning while Dorothy is still on the farm, she walks along the pig pen fence and then falls in. When Bert Lahr picks her up out of there her dress is perfectly clean.

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy is at the end of the movie confronting the Wizard about going home, since she killed the Witch, Toto goes over to the curtain and you can see him tied up to it as he opens it. Dorothy then goes over there and automatically has him in her arms - she didn't even need to bend down and pick Toto up.

Revealing mistake: When the foursome are granted permission to see the Wizard, they get up, link arms and proceed up the steps. You can see the wire that holds up the Lion's tail get caught in front of the Scarecrow's arm. He then lets it loose very carefully by unlinking his arm.

Revealing mistake: When the Wicked Witch scares the Munchkins in Munchkinland, where Dorothy lands, she disappears into a cloud of smoke she creates. But you can see her sneak down into a trap door below. [As a sidenote to this entry, Margaret Hamilton was hospitalized for severe burns after a take of this shot (not the final one used) when there was a glitch in the timing of the explosion.]

Visible crew/equipment: As the Munchkins sing "Ding Dong The Witch is Dead" " the shadow of the cameraman and someone else can be seen on the nest of the green Munchkin eggs as they hatch into little pink Munchlets.

????

Continuity mistake: As the Munchkins send Dorothy off singing "We're off to see the Wizard" the red coated guard is hanging out of his booth as he waves his sword. In the next shot he's inside the booth tapping time with his sword.

????

Continuity mistake: When they first meet the Tin Man a purple bird with a red beak appears and disappears several times near the house behind them.

????

Revealing mistake: After the Wicked Witch throws fire down at them the Scarecrow kicks the stump next to him and it moves several times. The one behind him also moves.

????

Audio problem: Just before Dorothy lets the scarecrow down, his lips don't match what he is saying.

Continuity mistake: When the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Dorothy are cornered in the witch's castle, the scarecrow grabs the Tin Man's axe and chops a rope, releasing the chandelier, which falls on the guards. In the next shot, however, as the witch is shrieking "seize them", the guards give chase with only 1 or 2 laying on the floor.

Continuity mistake: After they put the green robe on the Cowardly Lion, the flowers in the three pots on the right are different that what we saw at the beginning of the scene.

????

Revealing mistake: When the group is waiting to see the Wizard, the Lion sings the "If I Were King" song. The Tin Man grabs a flower pot and breaks it to make a crown. When the crown falls off the Lion's head later, it bounces around like plastic.

Continuity mistake: During the storm the farm hands let the horses go and Dorothy runs to the back of the house as the wind blows directly in her face. If you look closely a large wood plank is sent sliding on the road, in the wrong direction into the wind.

????

Continuity mistake: As Zeke feeds the pigs we see his hankie sticking straight up out of his back pocket. He doesn't touch it but later before he pulls it out after rescuing Dorothy, it's hanging downward and much more is showing.

????

Visible crew/equipment: As the door keeper tells them he will get them into the Wizard the camera shadow can be seen moving across the green door.

????

Continuity mistake: Glinda says to Dorothy, "I'm afraid you've made a rather a bad enemy of the Wicked Witch of the West…" and the mayor of the Munchkin city walks up from behind them. In the next shot he re-approaches them from the left.

????

Revealing mistake: In the scene of the Haunted Forest, when Dorothy is taken away by two of the flying monkeys, you can see that as she's kicking her legs in the air that they are mechanical. The kicking is very stiff and inhuman.

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy is talking to the Scarecrow for the first time, the Scarecrow moves further down his pole between close up shots.

Continuity mistake: The flower pot crown that falls from the Cowardly Lion's head goes from being behind the gang to by the right of them, with no-one touching it.

Hamster

Audio problem: Just before Aunt Em and the others go into the storm cellar, Em calls for Dorothy and tells Henry she can't find her. Em's mouth never matches any of the words she is saying.

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the Wicked Witch of the West bends down to retrieve the ruby shoes from the feet of her sister sticking out underneath Dorothy's house, there is one quick shot in the middle of the scene that shows her in front of a screen with a picture (film) of the house on it. Maybe that shot was filmed after the original set was unavailable? That would seem to be the only possible and reasonable explanation why such a shot would be necessary.

Revealing mistake: Soon after Dorothy, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow meet the Lion for the first time, they dance along the Yellow Brick Road, singing. As they disappear at the back of the set, their shadows can be seen on the backdrop, equally covering the trees and everything in between. DVD showing.

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the end when the Wizard and Dorothy are in the balloon basket, the tie down ropes on the right side keep going from tied to untied and back to tied again through different shots.

Revealing mistake: When the Tin Man breaks the flower pot for the Lion in the palace you can see the lines that it is supposed to break on.

Revealing mistake: If you listen closely, during the singing of "We're Off To See The Wizard" by Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, you can recognise Buddy Ebsen's gravelly voice. He was the original Tin Man, but had a reaction to the makeup. They had already recorded the songs and it was too expensive to re-do it. (This film was WAY over budget and they couldn't waste time and money re-recording songs)

Audio problem: At the very end of, "We Welcome You to Munchkin Land," at the very last 'fa la la la la laaaaaa' right before the Wicked Witch interrupts the song with her explosive arrival, you can hear someone scream before the explosion even occurs.

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Wicked Witch in Munchkinland goes over to observe the ruby slippers on her dead sister's feet, when she is up close there's not much space between her and the slippers but when she turns around and says "they're gone," she's further away, then she's closer again in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: At the witch's castle, the witch throws a sand timer to the floor from a banister, and it smashes in front of a large group of her guards. But in the next shot, when the candle chandelier lands on all the guards, you can see that the smashed timer has disappeared.

Hamster
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Witch melts, the broom is laying several inches from her dress. In the next shot, the broom is practically touching her dress.

brantlee

Continuity mistake: When the Lion is singing about being King of the Forest, the TinMan breaks a flower pot to "crown" him. Pay close attention, as the break marks on the pot change. In one shot there's a big jagged edge sticking up (obviously longer than the others) and in the next scene most of the edges are even.

Factual error: Toto is listed in the end credits as being played by Toto, when he was actually played by a dog named Terry.

moviefan2345

Continuity mistake: When Glinda tells Dorothy to follow the yellow brick road, there are many Munchkins around. A second later, when she is about to vanish, they've all disappeared.

Sacha

Revealing mistake: When Dorothy's bedroom is flying away to Oz, there's wind blowing everywhere and bits of hay falling. However, the hay is coming from inside the room, instead of outside, and the papers on the table next to the window don't blow away nor move an inch.

Sacha

Revealing mistake: During the cyclone, when the window on the left flies away and knocks out Dorothy, the window on the right opens violently and stage lights can be seen reflected in the glass.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: While with Professor Marvel, when Toto eats the sausage and Dorothy scolds him, she places her left arm on the basket. A frame later her arm is resting by her lap.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Inside the cyclone, looking out the window the wind is blowing left to right. In the room the wind is blowing in the window from the right.

????

Revealing mistake: When Dorothy runs to the back of the house during the storm a crewmember is moving the rocking chair in the room on the left. The wind never stops blowing, but the chair stops moving after it's left alone.

????

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy first meets the Scarecrow there are no pumpkins on the left side of the Yellow Brick Road. Later when he starts to dance pumpkins have been added.

????

Continuity mistake: Before Dorothy leaves Munchkinland she has a blue flower in her basket. She never touches the basket but as she dances out of town it's not there.

????

Continuity mistake: When the Wizard says, "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain" he pulls the curtain closed and Toto's not there. In the next shot Toto's tied to the curtain again.

????

Continuity mistake: When Glinda says, "Let the joyous news be spread" the bridge and pond are behind her. In the next shot she's turned around almost facing the pond.

????

Continuity mistake: The yellow brick road is made out of painted bricks. As they enter Oz it changes into shiny linoleum with grey grout marks painted on it.

????

Other mistake: As they walk through the forest in the shot before Dorothy says, "I don't like this forest" there are some cool digital glitches in the lower left hand corner of the screen which look like a strand of blue Christmas lights blinking on and off. (Restored and re-mastered DVD version only).

????

Other mistake: In the poppy field the tin man has hardly any of that artificial snow on him because it won't stick to the metal like real snow.

????

Continuity mistake: When the Scarecrow sings, " In trouble or in pain" Dorothy grabs him and is holding her basket with her left hand. In the next shot the basket is on her forearm.

????

Audio problem: The talking trees throw their apple's at Dorothy and the Scarecrow and if you look closely behind the tree on the right Toto can be seen barking his head off, but we never hear a thing.

????

Continuity mistake: As the Tin Man chops open the Witch's door only one piece of wood has fallen off of it. In the next shot when Dorothy comes through there's much more rubble on the floor (in front of and behind the door) than there should be.

????

Continuity mistake: As the Scarecrow yells for "help" in the poppy field, the Tin Man goes from holding the head of his axe to holding his head between shots.

????

Audio problem: As they all stand at the door to Oz Dorothy reaches for the knocker and we hear the overdubbed knocking sound before she touches it.

????

Continuity mistake: In the section just after the Tin Man has been oiled, he drops his axe and starts dancing on the road. After the Witch throws the fire at the Scarecrow, the three of them start down the road to Oz, he has mysteriously picked up his axe.

Audio problem: The very last line of the scarecrows song 'Life would be a ding-a-derry if I only had a brain' does not match with the scarecrows mouth movements, probably because he's too busy concentrating on his dancing.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When singing the 'tralalalala' song, in a wide shot many Munchkins run up to Dorothy, in a big crowd right beside her. But in the next wide shot when the mayor is saying 'From now on you'll be history' the crowd has gone.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy first meets the scarecrow, there is a patch of grass in front of the field the scarecrow is in. On the grass there's two beds of flowers. The flowers change colors from when Dorothy meets the Scarecrow, to when the Scarecrow starts his "If only I had a Brain" song.

Hamster

Audio problem: After the Witch is liquefied, the soldiers hail Dorothy. After Dorothy asks for the broom, they are heard hailing her again, but none of their mouths move. As the scene fades into the next one, the soldiers mouths can be seen beginning to move to say the line.

Continuity mistake: After the Witch throws a fireball at the Scarecrow in the woods and disappears, Dorothy is holding Toto. But when it cuts to a closeup of her, it looks like her shoulders are extended. When it cuts back to the wide shot, she indeed has her arms around the Scarecrow and Tin Man, even though she never put Toto down.

Krista

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Dorothy is saying good-bye to the Scarecrow, he is looking at Dorothy and begins to wave good-bye. In the next shot, his head is down and he lifts it slowly and begins to wave.

Continuity mistake: When the Wicked Witch scares the Scarecrow, Dorothy, and the Tin Man with fire, after the fire is thrown, not only is the Tin Man's funnel cap on backwards, everything is reversed. In order to keep the characters oriented from left to right correctly, they had to show the film from the wrong side, thus the buttons of the Scarecrow's jacket and everything else are on the wrong side.

Other mistake: When the Wicked Witch is giving the orders to the Nikko, the Head Winged Monkey, it shows his troops flying away before he's even finished receiving his orders.

Revealing mistake: When the Wizard is getting ready to take off in the balloon, while most people watch Dorothy climb out of the basket and go after Toto, the Tin Man is unravelling the thing holding the hot air balloon down, then he "accidentally" lets go.

Continuity mistake: As the Cowardly Lion chases him, Toto runs off the Yellow Brick road into the bushes twice.

????

Continuity mistake: The characters change places from one shot to another as the Wizard gives the Tin Man his heart, etc.

Revealing mistake: When Toto reveals the Wizard by pulling the curtain aside, he doesn't use his mouth; the curtain is tied to the dog. Dorothy can even be seen later removing the rope.

moviefan2345

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy asks the Wizard to take her back home, in every close-up of her the Scarecrow disappears from behind, only to reappear in the rest of the shots.

Sacha
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Back in Kansas, Dorothy holds Toto and her pigtails swap from being behind to in front.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When the Witch melts, four guards suddenly appear behind her remains.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: In the haunted forest, when the Tin Man is lifted up in the air, the Lion crouches and covers his face with his paws. A frame later he is standing up in a totally different position.

Sacha

Revealing mistake: As Dorothy skips off on her journey at the very end of the song "Follow the Yellow Brick Road", the shot cuts just in time to prevent her hitting the painted backdrop. The join between the ground and the backdrop is visible.

Continuity mistake: In one of the most endearing scenes from one of the greatest movies of all times, nobody noticed that as Dorothy sings "Over the Rainbow" the haystack she's standing next to just materializes between shots. Later it disappears long before the twister reaches the house. If you watch the movie you'll see the exact spot where the haystack should be seen as Aunt Em gives Dorothy a cruller and says to her, "…and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble".

????

Continuity mistake: As Dorothy and the Scarecrow exchange, "How do you dos" the straw coming out of the left side of his shirt triples between shots.

????

Continuity mistake: As Dorothy stands in front of the Wicked Witch the ruby slippers are protruding over the step. In the next shot they are several inches back from the step.

????

Continuity mistake: As Dorothy throws the water on the Wicked Witch the Tin Man goes from holding his ax in front of him to holding it close to his chest with the ax head sideways between shots.

????

Continuity mistake: When Glinda walks up the steps to greet Dorothy and the rest the floor can be seen and it's quite dirty. Later when Dorothy taps her heels together the same floor has been cleaned and shined.

????

Continuity mistake: The Tin Man looks at the rope that holds up the chandelier and it's covering the knot. The next time we see it as he takes the axe to it, the rope is on the left of the knot.

????

Continuity mistake: After they first meet him when Dorothy pulls the Tin Man's arm down we see her dress and there's nothing on it. In the next shot there are several wet spots on the front of it.

????

Visible crew/equipment: As they enter the poppy field their shadows can be seen against the painted wall as they walk in front of a stage light just before and after they come into view.

????

Continuity mistake: The basket that the monkey keeps Toto in is falling apart in the front as a piece of wicker can be seen dangling off of it. After Toto runs away the basket has been turned around and the piece of wicker is no longer there.

????

Continuity mistake: The Wicked Witch looks over at Dorothy and says, "I can't wait forever to get those shoes" and the metal hand she uses as a book mark rotates 90 degrees in her direction without being touched.

????

Continuity mistake: The Cowardly Lion says, "I'll fight you with one paw tied behind my back, I'll fight you standing on one foot." as he proceeds to put his arm behind his back and lift up his left leg. In the next shot his arm is out in front of him and his leg is on the ground.

????

Visible crew/equipment: As Professor Marvel stands at the window looking at Dorothy and his fingers are curled under the sash. If you look closely they are lit up from underneath, but there's no light on their floor.

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy says, "Oh, now I'll never get home" and her dress is clean. Several shots later the Tin Man asks, "What have you learned, Dorothy?" and there are now spots all over the front of it that last for the rest of the scene.

????

Continuity mistake: Before he is crowned, the Cowardly Lion has a blue flower next to his left ear. In the next shot it's gone.

????
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The Tin Man starts chopping the Witch's door and it's not the same one we just saw three shots before. The wood is a different color and the dark metal brace has been polished in the close-up.

????

Continuity mistake: When the Wicked Witch Tries to take the Ruby slippers from Dorothy it's obvious in the shot from behind that her right sock is pulled higher than her left. In the next shot they're both even.

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy is standing against a tree stump when the Wicked Witch throws the fire down at them. In the next shot she's nowhere near the stump.

????

Continuity mistake: If you look at Dorothy's dress, it's wet before she throws the water on the Wicked Witch. In the next shot the water spot (on Dorothy's dress) disappears only to return later when she gets the broomstick.

????

Other mistake: In the close-up as the Wicked Witch pets him, Toto, who has been referred to as a "he" throughout the movie appears to be a she. In actuality, Toto is a female Cairn terrier.

????

Visible crew/equipment: The seams in the floorboard under the Haunted Forest set can be seen several times under the leaves. The best is in the close-ups of Toto.

????
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Just before the Wicked Witch leaves Munchkinland she says to Dorothy, "just try to stay out of my way" and her broomstick is facing upwards. In the next shot it's facing downwards.

????

Continuity mistake: In a close-up of the Tin Man as Dorothy says, "We were just wondering why," there is no oil on his shoulder joint. In the next shot his shoulder joint is wet.

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy sloppily puts some oil in the shoulder joint and in front of the elbow of the Tin Man after he does his song and dance "If I only had a heart". In the next shot it's gone.

????

Continuity mistake: When the Munchkins start coming out to see Dorothy, one Munchkin comes out of a manhole. But in other wide shots, and when Dorothy leaves to go to Oz, the manhole has totally disappeared.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When Dorothy first meets the Scarecrow, he is placed up on a wooden stick and you can blatantly see the wire holding him up on it.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dorothy and the Lion are asleep in the poppy field as the snow is falling, there is at least one if not two close-up shots of Dorothy's face showing no snow falling around her at all.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the film, if you look at the Wicked Witch's nose, you can see that in some scenes the prosthetic nose is barely longer than Margaret Hamilton's real nose. In other scenes, the tip of her fake nose hooks almost all the way down to her mouth.

Continuity mistake: Not only does Dorothy's hair change length during the film, it also changes shade.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Dorothy, Tin man, Lion and Scarecrow are in the haunted forest and are discussing whether or not to believe in spooks, Tin Man is lifted up into the air and then comes crashing to the ground. You can see his pants wrinkle up as he's trying to get up. Since when does tin wrinkle like that?

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the guard tells Dorothy that she may not see the Wizard, Dorothy starts crying and tells a sob story about Auntie Em. Then, it shows the guard crying, but the tears aren't coming from his eyes. They're coming from above his eyebrows.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Tin Man breaks the flower pot for Lion's crown, the top of the flower pot falls away, forming the spikes on the crown. In the next shot when the Lion is wearing the crown, the base has been cut out to allow room for his head.

Continuity mistake: In the poppy field, when Dorothy points at the Emerald City, the Lion is standing more than a meter away from her. In the close-up he stands very close to her.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy arrives in Munchkinland, she hugs Toto, but a frame later her right arm is extended.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When the Munchkin in purple tells Dorothy to follow the yellow brick road, Toto runs ahead of Dorothy. In the next shot he's back behind her.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Aunt Em places a cold towel on Dorothy's head. The towel is sometimes away from the eyebrow, slightly on top, or completely covering it, depending on the angle.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: In Munchkin Land, when the Witch threatens Dorothy and Toto, the way she holds her broom differs between shots.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: The Lion says, "Read what my medal says," and holds it with his paw. In the close-ups the paw is away and the medal lies flat on his chest.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When water falls on the witch, a guard on the left disappears.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Dorothy's Aunt hands out some food, walks with her and leaves Dorothy alone. Several meters ahead there's a cart wheel and one chicken. When the angle changes, Dorothy is standing next to the wheel, which is also facing a different position, and there's a lot of chickens around.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: In the farm, after Hunk the farmhand has had his finger smashed, he scolds Dorothy. When she starts to leave, he hammers his hand and takes off his glove, shouting and turning around in pain. The angle swaps to a wide angle and he is working totally calmly with both gloves on.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Dorothy arrives home and there's a man fixing a cart whose finger gets smashed. In the wide angle his right hand is on the wheel, but a frame later in the close-up it's not.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Dorothy comes running into the farm and there's an old tire hanging from a tree. Two shots later as she walks away from Aunt Em and Uncle Henry the tire has been moved. The angle at which it hangs has been changed and the piece of rope hanging on the bottom of it is now three or four inches closer to dead center than it was before.

????

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy runs to the back of the house during the storm the field in the background is not the same as we saw a few shots earlier as Aunt Em calls for her.

????

Continuity mistake: As Dorothy and the rest are chased by the flying monkeys the order of the four changes between shots each time we see them in the overhead shots.

????

Audio problem: When Dorothy and the Scarecrow find the apple trees she says, "Oh, look, oh". The overdub is wrong, if you look closely at her mouth when she turns around toward the camera she's actually not saying anything.

????

Audio problem: Dorothy yells, "help, help" as she's chased by the flying monkeys but if you look at her mouth she's yelling, "Oh, Oh".

????
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Toto escapes, he runs up to the three putting the Scarecrow back together and the Tin Man has nothing in his left hand. In the next shot the ax appears in his hand.

????

Continuity mistake: Before the four go in to see the Wizard, and as they speak to him, Toto jumps from right to left between shots several times.

????

Continuity mistake: As they all leave the poppy field the artificial snow has been neatly swept off the Yellow Brick road, and all traces of the snow on the ground are gone in the next shot.

????

Other mistake: As Glinda walks over to meet Dorothy, the bridge is the same but the background behind her changes between shots.

????

Continuity mistake: Outside of Prof. Marvel's trailer the wind is blowing strongly on him, but if you look under and behind the trailer the trees are not moving.

????

Continuity mistake: As Glinda's bubble appears Dorothy walks off camera but we still see her standing there as her shadow is on the yellow brick road. When we first see Glinda Dorothy's shadow just disappears.

????

Continuity mistake: The Scarecrow is in the lead as the four run away from the guards and enter the tower where the Wicked Witch is eventually melted. In the next shot the Tin Man is in front.

????

Revealing mistake: The Scarecrow tells Dorothy to, "just bend the nail down in the back and maybe I'll slip off" but what she actually does is pull a lever.

????

Continuity mistake: When the Scarecrow says, "Won't you take me with you?" the straw from his right hand touches Dorothy's hair, but in the next shot his hand isn't even close to her.

????

????

The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy says to the Good Witch, "Will you help me? Can you help me?" and Toto goes from facing the camera to facing the other way between shots.

????
The Wizard of Oz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Glinda tells Dorothy, "Their magic must be very powerful…" and Dorothy has her left hand around Toto. In the next shot she's holding the flowers in front of her.

????

Continuity mistake: Aunt Em puts a compress on Dorothy's head as she returns to consciousness. In the next shot the top is folded differently.

????

Revealing mistake: As the Tin Man holds on to the Lion's tail, the seam in the painted backdrop behind them is very visible going from left to right across the entire sky.

????

Continuity mistake: In the Wicked Witch's room, she puts Toto in Dorothy's basket which now has a lid on both sides of it. Later when the boys come to rescue her, Dorothy walks over toward the hourglass, and picks up the same basket and it now has no lids on it (like earlier in the movie).

????

Continuity mistake: As the Wicked Witch throws her hour glass at them we see behind her as she stands on the balcony, and her broomstick is definitely not anywhere near her. As she runs down the stairs, it's in her hand.

????

Continuity mistake: After the Wicked Witch turns the hourglass over and leaves, Dorothy is crying and has wet spots on her dress from the tears. In the next shot her dress is dry.

????

Continuity mistake: As they enter the scene with the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow falls and then jumps over a patch of weeds growing in the middle of the Yellow Brick Road. In the next shot he does the exact same thing only about three feet behind the patch of weeds that he jumped over before.

????

Visible crew/equipment: In the close-up when the Dorothy sings, "With the thoughts you'd been thinking you could be another Lincoln, if you only had a brain" look closely and you can see the shadow of the camera man on the Scarecrow's arm.

????

Continuity mistake: Miss Gulch rides away on her bike and Toto jumps directly off the back onto the dirt road. There should be tire marks on the dirt where he falls directly behind the bike, but there aren't.

????

Visible crew/equipment: As they enter Oz an equipment shadow can be seen moving on the guards back as they pass by with the purple horse pulling them.

????

Continuity mistake: Dorothy says to herself, "Someplace where there isn't any trouble". If you look closely her hair is blowing in the pre-tornado Kansas wind. In the next shot it isn't.

????

Continuity mistake: As the Wicked Witch puts her flaming broomstick on the Scarecrow, look closely at the Tin Man. His chest dent that we saw several shots earlier on the left side of his costume, has been dented out.

????

Continuity mistake: As Toto escapes from the Wicked Witch there's a mortar and pestle to the left of the hourglass. In a close-up Dorothy looks at the hourglass after the Wicked Witch turns it over and we see the pestle has been moved to the other side of the mortar. There will be no confusion about this if you look at the direction of the shadow cast by the hour glass.

????

Revealing mistake: After the witch says "Hey scarecrow, wanna play ball" she throws a fireball at him. But you can see the ground catch on fire before the fireball hits the ground.

Revealing mistake: As the Tin Man busts down the Witch's door with his ax if you look closely you'll see a slight edit in the film right before he takes his last swing. What they did was unlock the door before the last swing so it would open. You can see the dead bolt retracted as the door swings open.

????

Audio problem: Inside the Emerald City Dorothy says "Can you even dye my eyes to match my gown?" Both the girl on the left and right reply but you only hear one voice speak.

????

Revealing mistake: Whenever Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion go off into the horizon you can see the line on the floor of the sound stage where the fake horizon is and the scene cuts off right as the four get to that point.

Revealing mistake: You can see strings attached to the witches monkeys as they fly, and also strings from their bodies to their wings, to give the wings that flapping effect.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: Just before getting crushed by the candle chandelier, the position the Witch's Guards are standing changes between shots. In one shot they're all standing apart, but in the very next shot, they all huddled together in one big group.

Hamster

Visible crew/equipment: When Dorothy lands in Oz and exits the house to Munchkinland, the camera pans around the land. When it slowly pans over a large bed of tall flowers, you can clearly see a very large shadow passing over them. Obviously the shadow of camera equipment or a camera crane.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Glinda sings, "And Kansas she says is the name of her star" you can see the black manhole cover behind her and none of the Munchkins that are around it in the next shot are there.

????

Other mistake: In the shot after the Wicked Witch throws fire down at them they all look up at her in the wrong direction.

????

Revealing mistake: The Wicked Witch throws her hour glass at them and it's guided down to the floor by a wire. If you look closely before it hits the floor sparks start up around it and after it hits it doesn't move or roll, but just sits there.

Continuity mistake: When the Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man are chopping down the witch's door to free Dorothy before the hourglass runs out, they are dressed in the guards' uniforms. We see the axe hit the door, and in the next wide shot they are not in the uniforms. There is a slight view of the uniforms in a pile on the floor, as if the trio had changed out of them between axe blows.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Scarecrow comes down off the pole and onto the yellow brick road, some of his stuffing falls out. You can then see Dorothy pick it up and put it back in. After Dorothy agrees to take the Scarecrow with her and they begin to skip away, you can see the straw that Dorothy supposedly picked up and put back inside the Scarecrow on the road again.

Other mistake: When the munchkin soldiers first arrive, you can see that some of the munchkins in the front are not beating their chest at the same time. This also happens when the munchkins sing the "fa la la la la" song before the witch arrives.

Continuity mistake: In the Haunted Forest, Toto comes to the Tin-man, Lion and Scarecrow, barking. In a wide shot he is standing on loads of leaves, then in a closeup, he's standing on hardly any leaves, but in the next wide shot, he's standing on lots of leaves again.

Revealing mistake: As the cyclone carries the farmhouse through the air, it is evident that the walls of Dorothy's bedroom are not solid walls, but fabric-covered flats. They flutter and vibrate in the wind.

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy first enters Munchkinland she steps out and in a front view we see her holding her hands close to herself, but when we look from behind, her hand is way out to the side.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the farmhouse is in the tornado, Dorothy is shown from behind with her pigtails in front of her shoulders. When the shot changes to the front, they are behind her shoulders.

Continuity mistake: Just before the group starts skipping towards the Emerald city, there is snow everywhere, but in the next shot, it's completely disappeared.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: In Munchkinland, when Dorothy walks the road and everyone sings "Follow the yellow brick, follow the yellow brick road," the angle cuts and a group of Munchkins have suddenly appeared in the center of the previously empty road. Dorothy was standing on the farthest point, so they had half a second to walk 10 meters, which is impossible.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When the group reads the sign in the Haunted Forest, the lion holds the handle of the butterfly net away from his breast. In the next shot it's pressed against it.

Sacha

Hamster

Character mistake: When Dorothy and the others enter the Haunted forest, the sign reads "Witches Castle One Mile." "Witches" is plural. To be grammatically correct, it should have said "Witch's Castle," if one witch, or "Witches' Castle" if more than one.

Continuity mistake: During the Lion's king song, the Tin Man breaks a flower pot and places it on the Lion's head as a crown. In the wide shot, the Tin Man's hand is still on the crown, but when it cuts to a closeup of the Lion the Tin Man's hand is suddenly gone.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the very beginning, when Dorothy is with Prof. Marvel, after she runs out of his trailer and the wind starts blowing, he follows her and goes towards his horse tied up outside. As he's walking towards the horse, you can see the shadow of a boom mic along his trailer.

Continuity mistake: At the Witch's door the Tin Man is not the wearing his metal suit underneath the guards clothing. Look at his waist.

????

Continuity mistake: When Toto pulls the curtain back to show who the real "Oz" truly is it looks like Toto's collar got snagged or he actually had to bite it but in the next shot he pulls the curtain back so fast that it would've sent Toto flying but then he is connected back to it again.

All of the group's feet, Glinda's dress, and the rest of the elements around are gone and replaced by a black background. Despite being a deliberate directorial decision to give the shoes a more dramatic focus, it is really awkward to see everything disappear, nevertheless.
