Wizard of Oz

In the movie Wizard of Oz what is the name of the theorem that the scarecrow stated when he got a brain?

The Scarecrow states an incorrect version of the Pythagorean theorem.

He states: "The sum of the square root of two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the third side."

There are two errors. The Pythagorean theorem applies to right triangles, not isosceles. Also the theorem is that the squares of two legs equals the square of the hypotenuse.

Properly stated, "The sum of the squares of the two legs of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse."

He said...

"The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an Isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side. Oh joy, rapture, I've got a brain. How can I ever thank you enough?"

How does 'The Wizard of Oz' relate to the farmers' plight in the 19th century?

That the setting is a farm and that the main character is a little farm girl whose family struggles to survive are ways in which "The Wizard of Oz" relates to the farmers' plight during the nineteenth century.

Specifically, farmers struggled against the stress of natural forces that they did not have the technology to control or mitigate during the nineteenth century. That struggle is reflected in "The Wizard of Oz," which begins and ends on farm land in the vast, hostile, bleak Kansas prairies. It is found in the worried, gaunt, exhausted appearances and words of Uncle Henry and Aunt Em, guardians of the little farm girl Dorothy Gale. It is evident in the resigned reaction of Uncle Henry to having to check the cows and horses and the panic of Aunt Em to getting under cover before the full fury of the cyclone is felt.

How does Dorothy symbolize populism in 'The Wizard of Oz'?

That she is a farm girl who meets challenges through her own hard work, personality and wits is the reason why Dorothy may symbolize populism in "The Wizard of Oz."

Specifically, the populist interpretation is not an analytical approach ever known to have been articulated by author and Oz series originator Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 - May 6, 1919) in terms of "The Wizard of Oz." But great literary works continue to challenge readers who find support for interpretations within and beyond the original author's expressed intentions. Populism therefore can be made to work as an interpretation of the book overall and in particular of Dorothy. Dorothy indeed appears as an ordinary prairie girl who uses common sense, manual labor and her wits to get through life. Populism acts to elevate the ordinary person as key to the unique identity and success of the United States of America as a young country among the world's nations.

Wizard of Oz

What color is Dorothy's hair in 'The Wizard of Oz'?

Dorothy Gale's hair is brown. In the original 1900 book edition of 'The Wizard of Oz', the character's hair color never is described.

In the beloved 1939 film version, actress Frances Ethel Gumm ka Judy Garland [June 10, 1922-June 22, 1969] appears as a natural brunette. In some scenes, her hair color looks lighter, others darker, still others reddish brown.
