Ed Wynn

  1. Frank Morgan, The Wizard of Oz, 1938.
  2. Sterling Holloway, It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, 1962.    Producer-director Stanley Kramer’s movie was stuffed full with stars – mainly comics. Not all agreed to join  the party, being terrified at the prospect of working with the great Spencer Tracy.  Because of his  1930s’ radio show, Texaco Fire Chief,  Wynn had been first choice for the chief of the Kramer Fire Department.
