ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Movies

What dog was originally cast to play Dorothy's pet in the 1939 movie classic The Wizard of Oz, before the part went to Toto?

Otto, a miniature long-haired dachshund that belonged to actress Margaret Hamilton, who played the Wicked Witch of the West in the film. Otto lost the part to Toto, a Norwich terrier, because of concerns at the time that the public might react negatively to a dog with German ties.
