World Cinema: Turkish Wizard of Oz

I am 1/4 Turkish so I can say without a shred of PC guilt that Turkish versions of American movies are fucking ridiculous. There's always a huger version of the American counterparts. Turkish Spider Man had a beer gut. In this acraptation of the Wizard of Oz both Dorothy and the dog are larger.

Things to look for:

* Dorothy lives not in a farmhouse but in an apartment with yellow walls

* Scarecrow has no fingers and seems very flamboyant

* Instead of a looming green head projected on a screen Oz is a skull
