TRUTH !!
toto received $100 a week (not bad for a dog) a hefty sum compared to the
$50 a week the munchkins were paid.
but it was less than judy garland's take-home pay of $500 per week. judy
made far less than any of the other principle players. ray bolger, who
played the scarecrow, made ten times judy's salary.
