Under the Rainbow en
Under the Rainbow is a 1981 comedy film starring Chevy Chase, Carrie Fisher, Eve Arden, and Billy Barty. The plot is loosely based on the gathering of little people in a Hollywood hotel, to audition for roles as Munchkins in the movie The Wizard of Oz. The movie also has nobility, assassins, spies, and tourists. The movie was nominated for Razzie Awards for Worst Musical Score by Joe Renzetti, and Worst Supporting Actor. It received extremely negative reviews, many of which condemned the various sight gags involving the little people. The film marked the first acting role of dwarf actor Phil Fondacaro, as well as his brother Sal Fondacaro. It was partially filmed on location at the Culver Hotel, where the "Munchkins" actually stayed during the production of Oz. Wikipedia [ - ]
