Follow the sandy road.... follow the sandy road...

wizard of oz reference in return of the Jedi

Mike Klimo points out a fantastic movie reference that can be found in Return of the Jedi. Here we have George Lucas sneaking a reference to the classic film Wizard of Oz early on Jedi.

Like Dorothy and her new friends went off to the Wizard's Emerald City, C3PO and his little buddy R2 head off to Jabba's Palace, each party not really knowing what their fates would be.

This referencing contines as Klimo notes: "in the early moments of Return of the Jedi, when C-3PO and R2-D2 travel down a long, winding road to Jabba’s palace, knock on the palace’s massive gate, and are greeted by a gatekeeper that pops out of a circular opening in the door"

I guess the connection between C3PO being a tin man like the Tin Man was too much for Lucas to pass up!
