Secrets from the Wizard of Oz
#2 The Munchkins' Tough Break
Each one of The Munchkins got $50 per day. The dog that played Toto got $125 per day. That's rough. That's less than half the salary of an actor who can't even talk. He didn't even walk much. Dorothy carried him half the time. But The Munchkins finally got their due. In 2007, they were collectively awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Unfortunately, only seven were still alive and well enough to attend.
