TRUTH !!
Terry, born in the midst of the Great Depression, was trained and owned by
Carl Spitz. Her first film appearance was in Ready for Love (1934) which
was released on November 30, 1934, roughly one month before her first major
film appearance, with Shirley Temple, in Bright Eyes (1934) as Rags.
She did her own stunts, and almost lost her life during the filming of The
Wizard of Oz (1939), when one of the Winkie guards accidentally stepped on
her foot, breaking it. She spent two weeks recuperating at Judy Garland's
residence, and Garland developed a close attachment to her. Garland wanted
to adopt her, but Spitz refused. Her salary, $125 per week (equivalent to
$2,300 in 2019), was more than that of many human actors in the film, and
also more than most working Americans at the time.
