Since the holidays are just around the corner, here are some holiday polls!
The polls below are report card polls. Please grade each character on how well you like them.
The part of The Tin Man was first given to Buddy Ebsen, whom you probably know as Jed Clampett from The Beverly Hillbillies. However, Ebsen did not appear in The Wizard of Oz because he became ill from his aluminum powder makeup. He was replaced by Jack Haley. Haley's makeup was aluminum paste.
Shirley Temple was considered for the part of Dorothy. Of course it went to Judy Garland!
The Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum. How did he come up with the name Oz?
Mr. Baum had two drawers of files. One was marked A-N. The other was marked O-Z! The movie was made in 1939!
