I think you mixed up a couple words there.

It seems all fucked up, but they really just missed a by between "played" and "the." Maybe some punctuation to smooth it out.

>is a holdover from the original script where she and the farmhand, played by the same actor, had a romance.

Now that just makes it sound like some guy played Dorothy.

Dorothy and the Scarecrow were to fall in love.

A concluding scene back in Kansas after Dorothy's return was removed before final script approval and never filmed. If it had, we would look at Dorothy's relationship with the bumbling Scarecrow quite differently. In the end scene, Hunk (the Kansan version of the Scarecrow) is about to leave for agricultural college and asks Dorothy to write to him. This scene apperently was meant to imply that a romance would develop between the two. This is said to explain Dorothy's preference for the Scarecrow over her other two companions in Oz. Traces of this plot idea can still be noticed throughout the film however, particularly when Dorothy is about to leave Oz and tells the Scarecrow, "I think I'll miss you most of all."

Interesting. I always figured Dorothy said that because Scarecrow was the first friend she made in Oz.

Yes, she and the farmhand played the same actor had a romance. That.

Absolutely, but if you truly want to keep your sanity, a person should always disable reply notifications, and definitely never reply to any comments.

Sure for words you can accident by make. Ok it's gonna be not ok, ok?


silvandeus t1_iyc1x93 wrote

That’s interesting! Wicked has the romance between the wicked witch and her lover, who is implied to have been reincarnated as the scarecrow.

Definitely a better choice than that troublemaking 12 year old Kansas gal!

Oh yea.....she was supposed to be super young. Yea, that would have been weird.;

Yes Judy Garland did indeed play the same actor alongside Ray Bolger. It was very confusing for them, too.

Of course they can. And then they can receive their feedback with dignity like an adult.

Thank fuck you spoke up, I was about to buy a goblin farm but I now see this isn't Facebook marketplace and that farm is actually a mobile game ad.

With everyone piling on OP, I can see why they reacted how they did.


Maclarion t1_iyby5z0 wrote

That's fair, and their behavior is very understandable, though IMO immature. FWIW, I don't like when people pile on me either, but instead of blaming them for having their opinions, I proofread to prevent it.

I sometimes mistakes too, but it's silly to get grouchy with people for expressing their amusement at such.

Isn't Dorothy supposed to be 12 years old? I think they made the right decision cutting that out.

I love that they left it in, because it really sounds like a big FUCK YOU to the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion.

Guess that sort of explains his name “Hunk” another name for a good looking guy, right?

I knew this, but above and beyond that, Baum was not a good guy. Two of his more infamous editorials concern the massacre at Wounded Knee and the death of Sitting Bull. Historians and scholars who have long studied both the Oz phenomenon and the man behind it are alarmed by Baum's call for the annihilation of the Indian people. Many condemned Baum's writings, calling them racist.
