    Margaret Hamilton played the Wicked Witch of the West and in the scene when she is leaving Munchkin Land in a puff of smoke the trap door was slow to open and she suffered 2nd degree burns to her face and 3rd degree burns to both arms and hands and her stunt double Betty Danko almost lost a leg when she sat on a smoking broom stick to fly away and it exploded…..

    Buddy Ebsen was originally cast as the “Tin Man” but after a week of being painted with toxic aluminum dust paste he was poisoned and almost died in the hospital…….In the end it was a timeless great film but you look at it differently knowing what went on but I guess they did things a lot different in the movie business back then………..
    I had no idea Hollywood was that bad back in those days. Seems to have only gotten worse.

    After her ankle surgery in 2007 my wife went to a rehab facility for physical therapy. One of her fellow patients there was an old gent who was one of the last living “Munchkins”. Quite the nice fellow, and one morning the staff celebrated his birthday when he arrived for PT.
    She says they never talked about the movie.
    His family of little people lived in the town of Pflugerville, Texas.

    first off I am ok. I was a little shaken up this morning as I was robbed at the shell gas station in North Palm Beach . After my hands stopped trembling I managed to call the police. They were quick to respond and calmed me down. My money is all gone. The police asked me if I knew who did it. I said yes...
    It was pump number 3.
