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. (00:57:05)
Lion: [crying.] Look at the circles under my eyes, I haven't slept in weeks.

Question: At the very end of the movie after Dorothy says "Oh, Auntie Em, there's no place like home," normally, it fades out to the credits, but once - and only once - when I was very young, I thought I remembered seeing the camera pan away from her face and down to the foot of the bed where you see the ruby slippers tucked underneath the bed, then a fade to the credits. It is obviously a black-and-white shot, but there were the glittering shoes. Has anyone else seen this version of the ending?Macalou
