ABOUT RAY BOLGER:
Ray Bolger (1904-1987), an American entertainer of stage and screen, is best known for his iconic portrayal of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Bolger began his career in vaudeville and his limber body and ability to ad-lib movement won him many starring roles on Broadway in the 1930s. Bolger's film career began when he signed a contract with MGM in 1936. Two years later Bolger was cast as the Tin Woodman in the studios big fantasy production The Wizard of Oz. Feeling he could use his dancing and comedic skills to greater effect, Bolger was delighted when his role was switched to that of the Scarecrow instead. Bolger also played the role of "Hunk" - Uncle Henry and Aunt Em's farmhand - which was the Scarecrow's Kansas counterpart in the sepia-toned sequences at the beginning and end of the film.
