Continuity mistake: In the scene where the characters are walking up to the Wiz, The Scarecrow gets scared and faints, and then falls into the lions arms. But then you can see him scratching his head, when he really should be unconscious.

Visible crew/equipment: As the Tin Man gets to the end of his song, he's dancing in front of three mirrors. If you look past him as he's centered in the middle mirror, you can see the camera lens looking out of the canvas at him.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the Wicked Witch of the West's song in the sweat shop, keep your eye on the line of dancers at the left of the screen, by their sewing machines. One knocks something off the table onto the floor, and it's subsequently kicked by one of the dancers and rolls about. It also disappears later when the shot changes.

Scarecrow: Barnum said there's a sucker born every minute.
Tinman: I was there when he said it, but I never thought I'd be one of them.
