Meinhardt Raabe Signed Munchkin Coroner Oz Display

"As Coroner , I thoroughly examined her
And she's not only merely dead
She's really most sincerely dead!"

 

This great display consists of a Wizard of Oz photo, which shows Dorothy and a host of munchkins, has been signed by Meinhardt Raabe - the coroner munchkin who declared the Wicked Witch of the East dead after Dorothy's house landed on her! Appropriately enough Meinhardt has added his character name beneath his signature. The Wizard of Oz changed the face of cinema forever when it hit cinemas in 1939 and remains one of the best loved films of all time. Given the passage of time, signatures from its stars are highly valuable and most difficult to obtain. This is your chance to bring some Oz history into your home at a slightly more affordable price!

 

When a nasty neighbor tries to have her dog put to sleep, Dorothy takes her dog Toto, to run away. A tornado appears and carries her to the magical land of Oz. Wishing to return, she begins to travel to the city of Oz where a great wizard lives. On her way she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a cowardly lion who desperately needs courage. They all hope the Wizard of Oz will help them, before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them.

The "tornado" was a thirty-five foot long muslin stocking, photographed with miniatures of a Kansas farm and fields. The yellow brick road originally showed up as green in the first prints. This stopped production and required everything to be repainted so it would show appropriately on the Technicolor film. The film started shooting on 13 October 1938 and was completed on 16 March 1939 at a then-unheard-of cost of $2,777,000. Oz earned only $3,000,000 on its initial release. The film has since made many many times more than that and is a timeless classic which continues to captivate audiences everywhere. This is your opportunity to obtain your very own rare piece of Oz history. Don't miss out!
