Where did the name come from?
The musical film Dixiana, which was released in mid-1930 and which — like The Wizard of Oz — included an innovative mid-movie transition from black and white to Technicolor.
The film’s main character, Dixiana Caldwell (played by Bebe Daniels), was a circus performer in the antebellum South. She fell in love with the son of a plantation owner, but a crooked gambler had his designs on her as well…
The movie also featured a song called “Dixiana” [vid], sung by the main character.
