She isn't coming yet, Toto. Did she hurt you? She tried to, didn't she? Come on. We'll go tell Uncle Henry and Auntie Em.
The Tin Man puts the Lion's crown on his right ear and there's a clear shot of him putting it on. Next shot, the crown is on his left ear and his hand has disappeared too quickly.
Toto is credited as Toto when his real name is actually Terry.
For the 2013 75th Anniversary IMAX 3D re-release, the film opens with IMAX's traditional "Countdown" intro, except here, it is tinted in sepia tone to match the opening/closing credits and Kansas scenes. This helped increase the hype for the film's magical transition from 2D to 3D within the countdown intro's first seconds and further enhanced the anticipation for the switch to Technicolor later on. After the closing cast list screen (there are no credits for the film's 3D conversion and restoration), the IMAX "Quality Counts" slate and MPAA rating screen are also tinted in sepia tone. These elements don't appear on the 75th Anniversary 3D Blu-ray edition of the film.
