Maybe you assumed, as I did, that the Tin Man enjoyed a lucrative career after The Wizard of Oz. Well, he didn’t. He struggled to find roles after that famous film, but he had developed a reputation as being difficult and demanding to work with, and wasn’t in demand. I heard he got a small consulting fee for Star Wars, but that turned out not to be true.
Now he has a small lawn maintenance business in New Hampshire.
Fame is fleeting.
