Her second play was "Zaza," not "The Lady From France." It is not known why the names of her plays were changed. See more »

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.
