Wizard of Oz, The - Tin Man Helps the Wizard's Balloon Depart
In the scene when Dorothy is trying to leave with the Wizard, but his balloon takes off to early you can see something that is quite interesting. The Tin Man takes the rope off of the wooden post that it is connected to so the balloon can get away. The editing people from the movie must be from this side of the rainbow.

If you look at it in terms of timing, it is very suspicious that he starts undoing the rope AFTER Dorothy jumps out and screams for the Wizard to wait. Plus, the way hi does it looks like he is trying to be discreet, as though he thought he might be on camera but wasn't sure. If it were part of the scene he would have been more deliberate in his actions. I always considered it part of a great conspiracy.

This was not an editing mistake. The Tin Man was untying the rope in preparation for the departure of Dorothy and Oz. He was supposed to hold the rope to steady the balloon while it was ascending.
