Jerry Maren

He took dancing lessons when he was young and aspired to be an actor. In November 1938, standing just three foot four, he met up with the Oz-bound group of little people in New York and went by bus to California. There he was chosen to be the Munchkin who hands Dorothy a welcoming lollipop. See full bio »

Personal Quote:

For me, it was meeting all the little people from all over the world. Not only the United States but from all over. A few of them came from Texas. You'd never believe that. I always thought only big tall men came from Texas and there they had about 10 little guys from Texas--I couldn't believe it. I met other little people from Germany, France, Italy--they were from all over. There were over 120!... See more »
