The Munchkin actors from the Wizard of Oz film have since not avoided controversy with alleged behavior behind the scenes. In a 1967 interview, Judy Garland referred to all of the Munchkins as “little drunks” who got intoxicated every night to the point where they had to be picked up in “butterfly nets”. These accusations were denied as fabrications by fellow Munchkin Margaret Pellegrini, who said only “a couple of kids from Germany even drank beer”. On 20 November 2007, the Munchkins were given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Seven of the surviving Munchkin actors from the film were present. As a result of the popularity of the 1939 film, the word “munchkin” has entered the English language as a reference to small children, persons with dwarfism, or anything of diminutive stature.
Presented is a trio of checks signed by some of the actors that played Munchkins in the popular Wizard of Oz movie. Included in the lot of cancelled checks are Lewis Croft (from 1994), Nita Krebs (from 1984) and Fern Formica (from 1988).
