Wizard of Oz photos sell for a pot of gold! - Behind the scenes snaps sell for a whopping £55,000...over 10 times the estimate.<br />
<br />
Photo Left depicts Dorothy, Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion riding the carriage with the “The Horse of a Different Color”.  The photo on the right depicts the same with a wider shot with a crowd of extras in the background, on the set of Emerald City.<br />
<br />
Amazing never before seen photos taken during the filming of The Wizard of Oz have come to light 80 years later.<br />
<br />
The black and white snaps were taken during the scene where the 'Horse of a Different Colour' enters Emerald City.<br />
<br />
In one photo, Dorothy, The Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion can be seen perched in a carriage.<br />
<br />
Another shows a crowd of extras in the background on the Emerald City set - and there is also a close up picture of the coachman, played by Frank Morgan who was also the Wizard of Oz.
