Speaking of which: An actor who played a Munchkin soldier in the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz," has died inTexas.

Austin native Clarence Swensen was 91.

Services will be Saturday in Pflugerville for Swensen, who died Wednesday.

The Austin American-Statesman reported Swensen had been in poor health since suffering a stroke in 2005.

Swensen wasn't allowed to attend public school until he was 9 years old because of his size. He eventually reached the height of 4 feet 6 inches.

In the late 1930s, he joined The Stanley R. Graham All Midget Circus troupe, which performed at the Texas State Fairgrounds in Dallas. It eventually led to an offer from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to play a Munchkin -- earning him a
salary of $700.

He is survived by his wife, Myrna, three daughters and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.
