A Hollywood Vulture EXCLUSIVE: Mila Kunis As The Wicked Witch In The Original Oz

In his review of Oz the Great and Powerful for the Chicago-Sun Times, Richard Roeper, echoed the sentiments of many (including myself) who were disappointed in the casting, particularly of Mila Kunis, who portrays the Wicked Witch of the West. He wrote:

Margaret Hamilton‘s Wicked Witch in the original “Oz” was the stuff of nightmares for generations. Mila’s Wicked Witch would get her first place for makeup at a Hollywood Halloween party, while her performance is closer to a Razzie than to an Oscar.

What would it look like if Kunis had portrayed the Wicked Witch in the 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz instead of Margaret Hamilton? I put together a video that demonstrates that it might not have worked out very well.
