Bert Lahr, 125 -- August 13, 2020

Bert Lahr, beloved for playing the Cowardly Lion in the 1939 Wizard of Oz and not remembered for much else, was born 125 years ago today, on 13-August-1895. My family watched the Wizard of Oz when it was on CBS every year around Easter time. My favorite part was when the Lion ran away and dove through a window. I have seen Bert Lahr in other movies, and haven't liked most of them.
