This iconic image of the story’s four main characters was used to publicize the film, including on an original release lobby card. Though there is not a trace of it here, during filming Judy Garland (Dorothy) could not stop laughing at how funny Bert Lahr was as the Cowardly Lion. In the final film, however, there is a hint of her amusement. With Jack Haley as the Tin Man and Ray Bolger as the Scarecrow.
