Nicklaus’ victory was immortalized when son Gary,

The Wizard of Oz, starring Judy Garland and featuring words
and music by E.Y. “Yip” Harburg and Harold Arlen, received
its world premiere in Oconomowoc,
Wisconsin, on August
12, 1939.

The beloved characters and familiar plot points were mostly
all there in the original children’s book, from the
Kansas farm
girl in shiny slippers transported to Munchkin land by a terrible
tornado, to the wicked witch, the brainless scarecrow, the
heartless tin woodsman and the cowardly lion she encounters
once she gets there.

Tony Martin (Alvin Morris) (December 25, 1913 – July 27, 2012)


Martin’s career spanned over seven decades, and he scored dozens
of hits between the late-1930s and mid-1950s with songs such as
"
Walk Hand in Hand", "I Love Paris", "Stranger in Paradise" and
"
I Get Ideas".

In 1958, he became the highest paid performer in Las Vegas, signing
a five-year deal at the
Desert Inn, earning $25,000 a week.

In an unlikely pairing, Martin recorded for the Motown Records label
in the mid-1960s, scoring a minor hit with the record "Talkin’ To Your Picture".
