Oz the Great and Powerful

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Oz gives his new assistant a gift, and leans in for a kiss. Both of them are seen to tilt their heads to their right for the kiss. The scene cuts to a wider shot, just before Frank barges in, and their heads are tilted to the left.

Continuity mistake: Glinda places her wand on the square-shaped stone at the graveyard. Oz tries to take the wand off the stone and she notices him. She then puts her hand around the first corner of the stone. In the next shot, her hand is suddenly approaching the first corner.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: After Oz and Theodora have climbed down from the small cave where they hid from their first encounter with a flying baboon and are having a brief conversation, the brim of Theodora's hat alternates from being held up on her right side in the shots from behind her, and being down as it normally is in the shots from in front of her. Presumably this was done to prevent the hat brim from obscuring Oz's face.

Question: Why was Oz considered a con man? He was simply doing magic tricks, which everyone should know aren't real.

Chosen answer: I believe you are taking a very modern day perspective. In our era of technology, scientific advancement, and general skepticism about everything, we are pretty jaded and cynical about things like magic and paranormal phenomena. At that time and place, audiences were far more willing to accept the possibility of true magic and sorcery, and weren't as prone to disbelieving what their eyes tell them. A "con" (short for "confidence") man is one who attempts to gain the trust of another, subsequently using deception, fraud and/or trickery for their own personal gain. I don't think it's unfair to label Oz this way, particularly at the beginning of the film.
