The last of the Munchkins

The Wizard of Oz is 70 years old...the surviving Munchkins are in their late 80s or 90.

Jerry Maren played the middle dude in The Lollipop Guild (and was a favorite of director Victor Fleming shown in photo holding Toto). Maren was also in The Terror of Tiny Town.

Bless all their hearts.

Trivia: The production people at M-G-M really needed more little people for the Munchkin scenes. They resorted to hiring approximately 12 children for the scenes.
