Personal Quote:

[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.

Haley himself acknowledged that were it not for his role as the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz (1939), he probably would not be remembered today. See more »
