Mrs. 'Ma' Frazier:
Did you enjoy your season in Buffalo, Mr. Williams?
Oh, very much. Good audiences, nice theatre.
I always found the Buffalo people most hospitable to the members of our stock company.
The women did make rather a fuss over me, but then it helps business.
I must say the men made rather a fuss over me too when I used to go to the Sticks for summer stock.
Did you have much trouble with the Indians in those days?

SECOND use of "Oz" background music in another film
This film was released a year after "The Wizard of Oz," and I was surprised to hear some of that classic's music being utilized in a scene here. The music in question from "Oz" is played over the opening scenes of Dorothy and Toto (puzzlingly entitled "Trouble In School"), and several times throughout the film. In "Lady with Red Hair," the same music is heard in scenes involving the lead character's young child.
Interestingly, in 1951, the film "Too Young to Kiss" utilized the exact same music over the opening credits.
Being that 1939's "Oz" came first, I can only assume the later films "borrowed" composer Harold Arlen's score.
CORRECTION: I have been informed that the above-mentioned tune is actually not original to "Oz," but is a classically composed children's tune.
