Sunday Funnies - Bert Lahr

This is a little video showing why Bert Lahr was a good choice to be cast as the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz. Lahr was a comic actor who appeared in burlesque and vaudeville shows and performed in Broadway musicals before making his feature film debut in 1931's "Flying High" -- I just loved him in the Wizard of Oz when I was young -- you can read more about him here.
