'Wizard of Oz' fans: Answer this before the hourglass runs out

The Wicked Witch of the West says: "See that? That's how much longer you've got to be alive. And it isn't long, my pretty, it isn't long. I can't wait forever to get those shoes!" Want to see the scene? YouTube clip

What was going to happen to Dorothy when the hourglass ran out?

  1. *In real life, a dreamer would likely awake in a sweat and heart palpitations, and bolt into an upright position in bed after such a personal threat, crying out, 'There's no place like home!" The nightmare (and movie's story line) would end abruptly.

    The wicked witch must have been better at threatening evil than carrying out evil in order to propel this story to its true finish.

    Dorothy was hallucinating after her concussion from the tornado - and if more was shown than suggested by the wicked witch's threat, the movie would not have been/continue to be watchable by many millions of children over many years.

    Their parents would have shut of their tv in the 1950's long before the Wizard of Oz scene could have 'shown more' and that would have severely limited the glory of the story.

    This is an example of the suggestion of evil being far more powerful than the gruesome details of so many awful horror movies. Let imagination reign!
