The Wizard of Oz

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.

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).

Continuity mistake: The Wizard shouts, "I can't come back I don't know how it works" and the Scarecrow is on Dorothy's left. In the next shot he's on her right.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Miss Gulch parks her bike on the fence in front of the Gale's house and it's obvious that the fence continues in the same direction past the gate. When Dorothy comes back during the storm the fence now curves around right after the gate.

Visible crew/equipment: Aunt Em gives Dorothy a cruller and says to her, "Â…and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble". Just as Aunt Em runs away you can see an equipment shadow fall across Dorothy's dress.

Visible crew/equipment: Dorothy asks the Wicked Witch, "What are you gonna do with my dog? and a stage light shines against the painted backdrop outside her window.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Revealing mistake: When it starts to snow in the poppy field, Dorothy falls asleep, followed by the lion. In many of the later shots, a thin wire attached to the lion is visible the entire time.

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: 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: The Wicked Witch enters the tower and says, "Ring around the Rosie" and the broom in her hands changes between shots. The one she sticks in the fire is different.

Continuity mistake: The clouds behind the side of the mountain don't move an inch in the time it takes Toto to run and get help and return to the same spot.

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: 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.

Revealing mistake: When the house lands in Oz, it lands with a bump and Dorothy is laying on her bed with Toto. The objects in the room had moved about a lot due to the twister, and wires attached to the end of the bed and the chair, etc. are really quite clear.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the cyclone, Toto runs up to the window and barks at a cow. In the next shot Toto is gone.
