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.
