* TheOtherMarty: Jack Haley became the Tin Man after the original actor (none other than future [[TheBeverlyHillbillies Jed Clampett]], Buddy Ebsen) was hospitalized. The Tin Man's makeup originally consisted of aluminum powder, which coated the actor's lungs and nearly suffocated him. To avoid the same near-fatal mistake, the makeup was changed to aluminum paste.

* YouLookFamiliar: Frank Morgan plays four different roles in Oz--the doorman at the gate, the coachman who drives the Horse of a Different Color, the guard outside the Wizard's chamber, and the Wizard himself. This was done to balance out Morgan's screen time with the rest of the cast.

* CutSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntuFQoiMbk4 "The Jitterbug"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urLDbg3m3Sk the sad reprise of "Over the Rainbow"]], though both are usually performed in stage adaptations of the movie. {{Averted|Trope}} with the main "Over the Rainbow" song itself, which the filmmakers almost cut out of concern that it would slow down the plot.

** Apparently, the reason that Dorothy hides behind the Tin Man and Scarecrow when they're ambushed by the Cowardly Lion is because she was about to start laughing.

** Nowhere in either the book or the movie is Dorothy's exact age mentioned, though the book describes her as a "little girl." Some sources suggest Dorothy was meant to be twelve in the film while others assume (from the casting of Fairuza Balk in ''ReturnToOz'') that in the book she is around eight.
