Munchkin Dubs Auntie Em's Voice In "Wizard Of Oz" (MGM, 1939) (video)

"Little person" Mickey Carroll (1919-2009) played multiple roles as Munchkins in 1939's "The Wizard of Oz"...

...including the town crier character...

...and the second fiddler from the left as Dorothy sets off on the yellow brick road.

He also dubbed some of the Munchkins' voices.

During the tornado sequence, the director didn't think Clara Blandick was shouting loud enough for Dorothy, so...

...he got Mickey to dub in Auntie Em's voice for the scene.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
