10 Hidden Details You Completely Missed In Outstanding Biopics

10. Elton John's Homage To The Wizard Of Oz - Rocketman

One of the defining features of legendary singer/songwriter Elton John has always been his incredible array of outfits.

Whether on stage or off it, John has sported some of the most outrageous items of clothing imaginable. So, when Taron Egerton signed on to play the musician in Rocketman (2019) a whole host of flamboyant numbers were always expected to make the final cut.

Sure enough, we were treated to everything from extravagant feather ensembles to his iconic sequinned Dodgers uniform.

However, one outfit which was perhaps a little under-appreciated was the one Egerton could be seen sporting during the 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' sequence. If you look closely, it becomes apparent that his entire outfit is a fitting tribute to the The Wizard of Oz (1939).

His ruby red boots and blue suit were a nod to Dorothy, the fur coat is a clear homage to The Cowardly Lion, his silver shirt symbolises The Tin Man, and finally his headwear is a tip of the straw hat to The Scarecrow.

It may not have been the most eye-catching costume we see in this anything but traditional biopic, but it's arguably one of the most rewarding once you spot the Wonderful Wardrobe of Oz.
