We all remember the moment in The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy leaves her home and enters Oz, especially because it takes us into the color portion of the film. And the geeks reading this probably already know that those first 22 minutes of the film were broadcast in B&W--instead of the original sepia—until 1989. And the observant folks know that the first shot in color has the door frame to the house painted in sepia so it appears to be in B&W until Dorothy opens the door But I just noticed this and think its really awesome.

The woman who opens the door is not Judy Garland. It's her stand-in wearing a sepia version of Dorothy's blue-and-white dress. Then when she steps back out of frame, Judy Garland walks through the door.

I love shit like this. Smart problem-solving. In-camera, on-location problem solving.
