The Wizard of Oz Movie Secrets Which Will Shock You
The Wizard of Oz premiered in 1939, but to this day, many decades later, it remains one of the most memorable and most-watched movies of all time. Now a bona fide classic, it continues to dazzle audiences, regardless if they’re in preschool or in need of senior care, and it will remain a favorite for years to come. On screen, it is colorful and stunning. What most people don’t know, however, is that it wasn’t always so happy and cheerful behind the scenes. Read on to find out what dark secrets lurked behind The Wizard of Oz production, and you might start seeing the movie in different light.

However, things could’ve been very different if producers had their way during the time. The movie was running long, so they wanted to cut it down by a sizable 20 minutes. The black and white Over the Rainbow sequence almost ended up on the flooring of the cutting room as they thought that it might be dragging for younger audiences.
