“This much I do know. I’m to do ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ I’m looking forward to this because I feel it can be a highly amusing and successful picture. I’m not sure whether I will play the Scarecrow or the Tin Woodman. Both are swell parts and if they keep it in a light vein, sticking to fantasy, I think it will be a big hit. Judy Garland is to play Dorothy, the little girl blown from Kansas to the Land of Oz. There are some marvelous songs in it, so she should be perfect.” — Ray Bolger in an interview he gave in September 1938.
