Happy birthday, Jack Haley!

Actor Jack Haley (circa 1930's)

Born on August 10, 1989, John Joseph Haley Jr. was a charming vaudeville actor and comedian who participated in numerous films, including several musicals.

He is best remembered as The Tin Man and his alter ego, Hickory, from The Wizard of Oz, a role he obtained after fellow comedian Buddy Ebsen presented an allergic reaction to the aluminum powder used to create the look of the character, thus having to resign.
