Trivia (2)

The Munchkins were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Motion Pictures at 6915 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
The Singer Midgets were not so named because they could sing (most of them in The Wizard of Oz (1939) had to be dubbed), but because they were organized and managed by Viennese-born impresario Leo Singer (1877 - 1951). The troupe of about 20 (on the average) little people was a popular vaudeville attraction in the first half of the 20th century, with many more members being added to the troupe for "Wizard." For many of these, most notably Billy Curtis and Jerry Maren, the film would be the beginning of long, successful Hollywood careers.
