Original "Oz" Munchkin cements fame in Hollywood

There remain only two living members of "The Wizard of Oz's" famous Munchkins, and on Wednesday (September 18), one of those two, 93-year old Jerry Maren, placed his hands and feet in cement at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre. Maren was all smiles during the event. According to the the theater, Maren is the oldest and smallest person to place their hands in cement in front of the famed venue that holds the prints of some on Hollywood's greatest, including Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and "Oz's" own Judy Garland. Maren was one of the lollipop kids in the movie, and treated the crowd at the ceremony to a rendition of the famous "Lollipop Guild" song. "The Wizard of Oz" has been converted into 3D, and will play in theaters as a special engagement starting on September 20.
