'Wizard of Oz' Munchkin Karl Slover Dead at Age 93

Karl Slover, who played a Munchkin in "The Wizard of Oz" has died at age 93, TMZ reported Wednesday.   Flowers will be placed on the Munchkins star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California in the afternoon, a spokesperson tweeted.
Standing at just 4 ft 5 inches -- Slover was one of the smallest dwarf actors who played the natives of the fictional Munchkin Country in the 1939 classic film.

He played multiple parts in the movie as a trumpeter, a soldier, one of the sleepy heads, and was also among the choir who sang "Follow the Yellow Brick Road."

There are now just three living Munchkins -- actors Margaret Pellegrini, 88, Ruth Duccini, 93 and Jerry Maren, 91.
