TRUTH !!
The costume for the Cowardly Lion is something to behold. If a man and a
lion had a baby, odds are, it would look something like Bert Lahr did in The
Wizard of Oz. This makes even more sense when you realize that a large
portion of Lahr's costume is in fact made from the pelts of real lions. The
look was great but, like the saga of the Tin Man, there were struggles
involved. The costume, and its real lion pelts, weighed almost 50 pounds.
