Biography

Although he had already established himself as a substantial vaudeville, Broadway and film star, congenial light comedian and singer Jack Haley will forever be remembered as the Tin Woodsman in 1939's The Wizard of Oz. Look for him opposite Shirley Temple in The Poor Little Rich Girl (1936) and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938), Alice Faye in Wake Up and Live (1937) and Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938) and Judy Garland in an early role in Pigskin Parade (1936). Retired from the screen in the '50s, he started a highly successful second career in real estate. His son, producer Jack Haley, Jr., not only became an important film-history documentarian but was also briefly married to Liza Minnelli, daughter of his father's Oz co-star Judy Garland. ~ Rovi
