Toto Was Almost a Man
The producer, Mervyn LeRoy, reportedly was very close to casting a man to play Toto. It sounds strange, but then again, is it any stranger than the rest of the cast?
It worked out well for the real Toto, (a girl named Terry), as she earned her owners $125 per week of filming. Not bad for a pup considering each Munchkin actor received only $50.
