Munchkins Reunite

In honor of The Wizard of Oz’s 70th anniversary, Newsweek was kind enough to reunite the five surviving munchkins

The reunion wasn’t a time to mourn, though, but rather to celebrate the legacy of the film and the lives of the actors who provided some of the film’s most famous and beloved scenes, which helped change the way the public looked at little people. Reminiscing about the production, the five discussed the generosity of Judy Garland, fears that Scarecrow actor Ray Bolger would injure himself with his stunt work and their discovery that Dorothy’s little dog Toto actually got paid more than the munchkins because “he had a better agent.”
