Did you know…
The coat used by Frank Morgan (The Wizard) belonged to L. Frank Baum?
The wardrobe department was looking for something with a shabby look which gave the appearance of having been elegant once. They purchased the perfect coat at a second-hand store, and while shooting, actor Frank Morgan discovered a label indicating the coat had been specially made for L. Frank Baum, the writer of the Wizard of Oz books. After shooting, the coat was given to his spouse.
