"First they took off my legs and threw them over there"

The Scarecrow in "The Wizard of Oz" was torn apart by flying monkeys, thugs working with the Wicked Witch of the West, but still managed to speak coherently. The movie, one of my favorites, opened this month in 1939. A young Judy Garland sang the beautiful "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." The maker of the concrete flying monkey pictured here also apparently loved the film.
