It was Bobbie Koshay, not Judy Garland, who was carried into the air by the flying monkeys in the haunted forest scene. Caren Marsh-Doll stood in for Garland in tasks like blocking shots and camera tests.

When Betty Danko was seriously injured while filming the broom-skywriting scene, Eileen Goodman finished the shoot for her.

None of the Munchkins sang on the film's soundtrack; their voices were dubbed by professional singers. Most of the Munchkins were "little people," though their numbers were supplemented by a few children. (There were more males than females among the little people in the cast; eight girl actresses helped to even out the gender proportions.)

At least 300 extras were used in the film's Emerald City scenes. They worked for four days, and made $11 per day.
