The Munchkins: Walk of Fame

On November 20th, I attended the Walk of Fame star ceremony for seven of the surviving Munchkins from "The Wizard of Oz".

Joey Luft, son of Judy Garland made a brief speech.
After the ceremony I went to the "Lunch in the Land of Oz" at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The lunch was in the same room where the first Academy Awards ceremony was held.

At the luncheon, I met actress Ann Rutherford, one of the last surviving cast members of "Gone With The Wind". Ann played Scarlett's sister, Carreen O'Hara (below).
