• Some of the Munchkins are still alive. That is about it. +
  • funny u should ask as im watching that right not sure but i do know for a fact that the tin man died due to the mercury in the face paint they used on him in that very movie and obviously judy garland is dead...but thats all i know
  • The answer to that would be some of the munchkins are still alive, but everyone else is dead. It wasn't the tin man who had been in the movie who had died of the face paint, it was Buddy Ebsen, who had to be replaced with Jack Haley, who died in 1979. Ray Bolger (Scarecrow), died in 1982, Bert Lahr (Lion), died sometime before, Frank Morgan (Wizard), died in 1949, and Judy Garland (Dorothy), died at the age of 49.
  • Not true about the paint. You're an idiot for writing that
  • None of the stars of the film is still alive: "Starring: Judy Garland Ray Bolger Jack Haley Bert Lahr Billie Burke Margaret Hamilton Frank Morgan" "Judy Garland (born Frances Ethel Gumm; June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American actress and singer." "After appearing in vaudeville with her sisters, Garland was signed to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as a teenager. There she made more than two dozen films, including nine with Mickey Rooney, and the film with which she would be most identified, The Wizard of Oz (1939)." "Ray Bolger (January 10, 1904 – January 15, 1987) was an American entertainer of stage and screen, best known for his portrayal of the Scarecrow and Kansas farmworker Hunk in the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz." "Jack Haley (August 10, 1898 – June 6, 1979) (born John Joseph Haley, Jr.) was an American film actor best known for his portrayal of the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz. He also portrayed farmworker Hickory, who appeared in the Kansas sequences, in the film." "Bert Lahr (August 13, 1895 – December 4, 1967) was a German-Jewish American Tony Award-winning comic actor and vaudeville comedian." "Born Irving Lahrheim in New York City, Lahr is best remembered today for his role as the Cowardly Lion and the Kansas farmworker Zeke in the classic 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, but known during his life for a career in burlesque, vaudeville and Broadway." "Mary William Ethelbert Appleton "Billie" Burke (August 7, 1884 – May 14, 1970) was an Oscar-nominated American actress primarily known to modern audiences for her role as Glinda the Good Witch of the North in the musical film The Wizard of Oz." "Margaret Hamilton (December 9, 1902–May 16, 1985) was an American film actress best known for her portrayal of The Wicked Witch of the West in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz." "Frank Morgan (June 1, 1890 – September 18, 1949) was an American actor best known for his portrayal of the title character in the film The Wizard of Oz." Some of the Munchkin were still alive in 2007: "Almost 70 years after "The Wizard of Oz" premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, a few of the film's Munchkins made a grand entrance there Tuesday to receive a collective star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Seven of the surviving actors who played the inhabitants of Munchkinland in the 1939 classic attended the ceremony, arriving in a horse-drawn carriage and trailed by a marching band. A yellow carpet, resembling the film's yellow brick road, led them to the stage. One tap-danced, and another sang. "We love you; you have touched our hearts," former Munchkin Mickey Carroll, 88, told the crowd. Carroll was joined by former Munchkin colleagues Ruth Duccini, Jerry Maren, Margaret Pellegrini, Meinhardt Raabe, Karl Slover and Clarence Swensen."
