Bert Lahr with hat

And yes, that is the man who brought you The Cowardly Lion. I didn't know he had been in potato chip adverts.

Free idea: a site that takes actors that are known by today's audiences for one thing (i.e. Lahr here for The Wizard of Oz) and then educates us on the rest of their career. Because so much of what else they were up to gets lost/forgotten/overshadowed.

I'd do it myself, but I don't know enough and am too damn busy as it stands. E-mail me when it's up. Thanks.
