Creature Comforts!

Myrna Loy and friend

The very young Myrna Loy offering Santa’s (or someone’s) reindeer a nibble. Just thought of who could play her in a movie: Diane Keaton. What do you think?

The many faces of Frank Morgan, the grand “Wizard of Oz”!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

While growing up and watching “The Wizard of Oz,” I didn’t realize how many parts actor Frank Morgan played. Did you?

Morgan, born Francis Philip Wuppermann, played five parts in this classic movie: the professor, the guard, the gatekeeper, the carriage driver, and the Wizard of Oz!

Per IMDb, “W.C. Fields was originally considered for Morgan’s role in The Wizard of Oz (1939). However, Fields haggled endlessly over salary, and the role was given to Morgan.” I can’t imagine anyone else, especially Fields, playing these roles, can you?

It’s a shame that Morgan didn’t live long enough (died ten years after the movie release) to see how much he and the movie contributed to the world of film! When watching the scene where the Wizard awards Dorothy and friends with gifts, Margaret Hamilton (Miss Gulch/the Wicked Witch of the West) said, “Frank Morgan was just like that in real life – very generous.
