Margaret Pellegrini has expired at the age of 89. Pellegrini was one of the original Munchkins from the 1939 classic movie "The Wizard of Oz."
To move ahead, Mr Ted Bulthaup, who owns a Chicago theatre where Pellegrini and other Munchkins have made special appearances expressed that Pellegrini experienced a stroke on Monday at her Glendale home and expired on Wednesday at a Phoenix-area hospital. He said he learned of Pellegrini's death from her relatives. Accompanying her death, only two of the original 124 Munchkins in the movie are still alive. Interestingly, Pellegrini had said she was 16 when "The Wizard of Oz" was filmed in which she played one of the "sleepy head" kids and wore a flowerpot on her head in the movie.
