Did you know there was a Wizard of Oz movie before the one with Judy Garland in 1939?

I found the original version on YouTube. It's from 1910, that's 100 years ago. Fascinating.

In it, you'll notice that the Scarecrow and the Tin Man are very similar in design to the later movie, and also the costumed animal characters look to have inspired approach to the Cowardly Lion.
