Some more Oz stuff: I watched the Origin of Oz today on the Smithsonian Channel. Oscar's fanboying of Thomas Edison in the film came from L. Frank Baum's own fanboying of Thomas Edison. Oscar's bag of magic is from The Magic of Oz, the thirteenth book in the Oz story, where the Wizard carried his own 'bag of magic'. I love it when writers do their homework.

The 'magic in a bottle' was my favorite part. That was the moment where Oscar lost the upper hand with China Girl. ♥

Even though the brush was dry...that's some magic in a bottle.

That was one of the moments where we got to see the real Oscar and not Oz the con man. I loved how you could tell when he was Oscar with a heart and Oz the con, cheat, womanizer, fibber, etc. :D

Oh, AND WHAT ABOUT THE SLIPPERS? Red or silver, I don't care, but it left a noticeable hole :/

I think that with all they had to do in the film, which they still cut a lot of backstory out, it would have been too much to include. And with sequels planned, they can always include the slippers in another movie. I didn't miss the slippers, honestly. The story they needed to tell was more than enough.

I'm thinking that Evanora goes to Theodora for help in getting her powers back and that's when the silver slippers come into play.

I would love to see them tackle how Nick Chopper becomes the Tin Man. *nods*
