Oz in the News 3.1.16


Munchkin actor death appears to have been erroneously reported The last surviving Oz munchkin, Jerry Maren, has been reported throughout social media as having died at the age of 96. Mr. Maren is best known as one of the Lollipop Guild in the classic 1939 movie version of “The Wizard of Oz.” But his career lasted long enough for him to have also appeared on TV’s “Seinfeld.” However, after reports from several sources on social media sites, including acquaintances of Mr. Marren, there have also been conflicting reports that insist the actor is still living. He is 96, suffers from pancreatic cancer, and was recently widowed, but appears to not have passed away. One late report claimed that his caregiver was called and Mr. Maren was alert and watching television as late as 7pm Monday night, pacific time.
