One of the last remaining Wizard of Oz Munchkins passes away

Mickey Carroll, who played the town crier of Munchkinland, marched as a "Munchkin Soldier," and was the candy-striped "Fiddler" who escorted Dorothy down the yellow brick road, passed away on Thursday. He was one of the last remaining Oz Munchkins still alive.

Carroll was one of 100 recruited to play munchkins and made a mere $125 a week. The Wizard of Oz was his only movie.
