Last Surviving “Wizard of Oz” Munchkin claimed by #METOO movement

The last surviving midget cast to play a munchkin in “The Wizard Of Oz,” has been accused of sexual misconduct.

98-year-old Jerry Maren played a munchkin in the lollipop gang but according to Judy Garland’s husband, he’s not all that innocent. Garland was 16 years old when she filmed “The Wizard Of Oz,” in 1939. And her now-deceased husband, wrote in his book to be published posthumously, “Judy And I: My Life With Judy Garland,” that the young Garland experienced sexual harassment while filming.

I just can’t pass up a great headline.
