Profile Bio Text
Ebsen was originally cast as the Scarecrow in the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz", but switched roles with Ray Bolger, and then was forced to bow out of the film when he proved allergic to the required silver makeup. Also, because the aluminum was in powdered form, it escaped into the air and coated his lungs when he breathed it in. This caused a near-fatal illness and a professional and personal disaster for Ebsen.

Has Detailed Data (New)
Christian Ludolf Ebsen, Jr., known as Buddy Ebsen (April 2, 1908 – July 6, 2003), was an American character actor and dancer. A performer for seven decades, he had starring roles as Jed Clampett in the long-running CBS television series The Beverly Hillbillies and as the title character in the 1970s detective series Barnaby Jones. Ebsen also played Fess Parker's sidekick in Walt Disney's Davy Crockett miniseries (1953–54), and was cast as the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz (1939) until he fell ill from an allergy to the makeup. Ebsen had a cameo role in the 1993 film version of The Beverly Hillbillies, not as Jed Clampett, but as his other famous character Barnaby Jones.
