Hollywood Wax Museum- Wizard of Oz

The first scene beyond the entrance of the Hollywood Wax Museum is a nice depiction of the Wizard of Oz. Although visible from the street, and easy to take a look at without paying, the scene is viewed best after one enters the gate. Here we see Dorothy gale with the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow. Toto stands at her feet waiting to attack any wicked witches who may try and steal her ruby slippers. Where is that witch? Maybe she is plotting to have her winged monkeys fly in and kill them all.

This close up shows the Scarecrow, played by Ray Bolger (1904-1987), and Dorothy, played by Judy Garland (1922-1969). her figure looks lifelike, just not like her.

The Cowardly Lion, played by Bert Lahr (1895-1967).

Here is the sensitive Tin Man, played by Jack Haley (1898-1979). Hey look, it's 10:10.

There she is! The wicked Witch of the West is hiding behind a tree. She'll get you, you pretty. The witch was played by Margaret Hamilton (1902-1985).

This is an apple tree that guides guests to the entrance of the wax museum. The sign points to the witches castle, but I never found it. I guess there's more than one witch who lives there.
