* StandardSnippet: During the escape sequence at the Witch's castle, between the breaking of the door and the Witch's arrival with the hourglass, the soundtrack uses some of Mussorgsky's ''Night on Bald Mountain''. Also, when Dorothy is running home after her encounter with Miss Gulch, the music is a sped-up version of Schumann's ''Happy Farmer.'' (If Dorothy is taking piano lessons, that's probably one of her pieces; also, at the moment she is a rather UN-happy farmer!)

Also, the opening music for the movie (just before it the instrumental of "It Really Was No Miracle") uses a snippet of the overture of Tannhäuser.

* AgeLift: Dorothy is around eight years old in the book but is aged up and played by the 17-year-old Judy Garland. Several sources have said that Dorothy is intended to be twelve in the film. Her breasts had to be bound very tightly for her to appear younger.

* NiceGuy: Dorothy really lucked out in meeting the guys when she first came to Oz. The Cowardly Lion seems mean at first, but it turns out it is just a JerkassFacade with which to hide the fact he's really terrified of them.
