Much has been said about the legendary make-up of the Tin Man, but Margaret Hamilton, who played The Wicked Witch of the West also suffered greatly because of a mishap with the make-up.

As she’s preparing to leave Munchkinland, a cloud of smoke goes around the Wicked Witch and she disappears, but Hamilton’s cape got caught in the platform when the fire burst and her make-up, which contained copper, overheated. They had to remove the make-up using acetone, which caused the actress a lot of pain.
