The Kuleshov Effect, ca. 1918, Russian filmmaker Lev Kuleshov demonstrated how a sequence of shots can manipulate the emotions of an audience. Actor Ivan Mosjoukine's same steady expression was intercut with a bowl of soup, an old woman in a casket, and a young woman. Mosjoukine was then praised on his portrayal of realistic pains of hunger, grief for a loss, and desire for a young woman, depending on the sequence of shots.

"Inside the Cyclone"
The music shifts to a dangerous tone with a slight dreamy sound effect, indicating Dorothy is hurt, but unaware as her dream takes over.

"Witch's Castle"
After Dorothy is captured by the Wicked Witch, she was to sing a reprise of "Over the Rainbow." Though the performance was emotional and perfectly captured Dorothy's feeling of abandonment and homesickness, it was likely too sorrowful for the intended audience of children.

"If I Only Had a Brain"
Sometimes an excellent performance doesn't make the final cut due to time or story restraints. The Scarecrow's extended dance scene was set to happen in the middle of "If I Only Had a Brain." The dance showcased Ray Bolger's flexibility and rubbery dance style.

"Haunted Forest"
The show-stopping "Jitterbug" song and dance was to take place after Dorothy and her friends left the colorful Emerald City and entered the dark, shadowy, haunted forest to hunt for the Wicked Witch.
