St. Louis 'Oz' Munchkin among those honored in Hollywood
By National Public Radio
Hollywood, Ca. – The munchkins from The Wizard of Oz are getting a star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame.
Ted Bulthaup, a theater owner in Woodridge, Ill., who led a campaign for the star, and 88-year-old Mickey Carroll of St. Louis, one of the munchkins, talk with Melissa Block.
Bulthaup says he thought the munchkins had a "slam dunk" case for a Hollywood star, but it took longer than he thought to make it happen.
