[on a The Wizard of Oz
(1939) glitch, involving a 'Tin Man' who should appear rusty] For three days I worked in a shiny suit of tin, with a sparkling tin nose, a bright tin strap around my head, a glistening tin pot on my head, and a coat of brilliant tin paint on my face. I glittered no end - for three days!
Scheduled before Haley to play the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz
