The Wizard of Oz on TBS today

In HD, I've always wondered in the tornado sequence, was Judy's double Bobbi Something used in those scenes when she's trying to get back to the farm and walking into the wind machine? There was a lot of crap flying around and you'd think they'd use a double and not risk Judy being injured. I think it's here double but can't tell. However when Dorothy falls into the pig pen, that is definitely a stunt double. And you can see up her dress too!!!!

I have it on DVD. Is it on the Blue Rae yet?

by Anonymousreply 112/29/2012

Yes, it's on BluRay. There are a few different editions depending, I guess, on what extras you want.

They poisoned people, set them on fire, gave them bone injury, etc

They didn't think about much back then.

The film is one of the worst edited motion pictures in history.

I like seeing Margaret Hamilton's double in the opening of her Munchkin Land scene.

Lots of continuity flubs. Judy's pigtails, her shoes, etc.

It didn't help that director Victor Fleming was pulled off Oz before filming was complete, to take over Gone with the Wind.

This has been asked before, but never answered completely: What year is this supposed to be taking place? And before you say "1939" (when the movie was made), think about it: the farm equiptment, the clothes, no cars, etc. The book is early 1900's.

Look up MADTVs "Wizard of Oz alternative ending" on youtube. That clip is fucking genius.

Thanks R15. That was fucking funny. My laugh(s) for the entire week....perhaps month.

It went on too long. They should've stopped it right after she said, "You've always had the power to go home."

I never did buy the ending in the original either.

[quote]What year is this supposed to be taking place?

I think they decided not to set a specific year, but sought only to evoke a generic early 20th century look and feel to the scenes in Kansas.
