So, tons of times, relatives or non-Oz fans who know I'm an Oz fan, tell me obvious things to try to talk about something I like, I suppose. Here are some things I hear a lot...
"Did you know that in the book the shoes weren't ruby, they were actually silver?" 
"I read somewhere that The Wizard of Oz is actually a political story. The yellow brick road represents..."
"There's a hanging munchkin in The Wizard of Oz!" 
"Michael Jackson was in a black remake of the movie, have you heard of it?" 
"Did you know that the Wizard of Oz is actually based on a book?"

"She lives in Kansas and there's the ..."

"Was it on SyFy?" I interrupted, guessing what she might mean.

"Oh, yeah, it was."

"Oh, you mean Tin Man."

"Yeah!"

LFB went bankrupt because the movie was all filmed in black and white, and he had it sent to France to be hand-painted.
