Bert Lahr Social Network




(11/3/1956) Was one of the hosts of the first telecast of the classic film The Wizard of Oz (1939) (the others were Judy Garland's daughter Liza Minnelli, who was ten at the time, and twelve-year-old Oz expert Justin G. Schiller). This marked the only time on television that an actor who played a leading role in the film, as well as one of the offspring of an actress who starred in it, hosted the presentation.


Won Broadway's 1964 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for "Foxy". He also had a Tony Award nomination the previous year (1963) as Best Actor (Dramatic) for "The Beauty Part".


Actor Tommy Bond who was also Butch in the Little Rascals and Jimmy Olsen in the original Atom Man vs. Superman (1950) serials, was a regular on Lahr's radio show in the 1930s, and played his son.


Had three children: Herbert Lahr (born 1929), John Lahr (born July 12, 1941) and Jane Lahr (born September 2, 1943).


Fittingly known to be a "Leo" for his horoscope, Bert Lahr is always remembered as the Cowardly Lion in (and the farmer "Zeke") The Wizard of Oz (1939). But during his acting career, he has been known for being in burlesque, vaudeville, and Broadway. Dropped out of high school at the age of fifteen for a juvenile vaudeville act, Lahr worked his way up to the top billing of the Columbia Burlesque Circuit.

Aside from The Wizard of Oz (1939), Lahr's movie career never caught on because his gestures and reactions were too broad.


When in Broadway, Lahr usually plays a comic actor in plays which he starred in such as the classic routine The Song of the Woodman, which he would later perform in Merry-Go-Round of 1938 (1937).


He began seeing his future second wife Mildred in the early 1930s while his first wife was institutionalized. Mildred left him in March 1936 and married another man because he would not divorce his first wife. Mildred left her first husband by the end of 1936 and went back to Lahr, who obtained a divorce from his first wife a year later.


Had appeared in a total of 18 Broadway shows from 1927 through 1964.
