My Meeting With a “Wizard of Oz” Munchkin

Lou with Jerry Maren
Dan Alexander/Townsquare Media NJ

A few years ago I had the great honor of spending some time, and smoking a cigar, with Jerry Maren who was a Munchkin in the “Wizard of Oz” (he played the member of the ’Lollipop Guild’ dressed in green). After hearing of the sad news this week that Karl Slover had died, it dawned on me that my friend Jerry is the last surviving male Wizard of Oz Munchkin.

Having the opportunity to talk with an actor who was actually on the set of one of the most famous movies of all time was amazing! Hearing him tell stories about what the yellow brick road really looked like and the things Judy Garland said to him was like being in a time machine! And Jerry loves to tell those stories. His eyes light up like it just happened yesterday! Thank you for the opportunity Jerry. I will remember it forever!
