Goofs

A questionable poster shown announces that "The Wizard of Oz" will be telecast on NBC February 12. However, it was never telecast on NBC on that date. It *was* shown on February 12, 1967, but on CBS, not NBC. This was the last time that CBS showed it before it went to NBC. They reclaimed the film in 1976. See more »
