Before his death June 6, 1979, Jack Haley became famous for playing an iconic character in an equally iconic movie – the Tin Man of The Wizard of Oz. Famously, Haley replaced Buddy Ebsen in the role after Ebsen suffered a severe reaction to the silver makeup that covered his face. The change helped make Haley's career, and he goes down in history having played one of the most beloved characters in children's movie history. We're remembering his life today with a stroll down the Yellow Brick Road as we look at pictures from The Wizard of Oz. Click any photo for more info.
