Muskegon actor from "Wizard Of Oz" dies at 86

by

MUSKEGON (WKZO) -- He's not listed in the credits, but Danny Windsor of Muskegon played one of the flying monkeys that flew off with Toto in the 1939 classic "The Wizard Of Oz."  The list of people still alive who were part of that movie is now smaller by one, with his death at the age of 86.

The "Muskegon Chronicle" reports Windsor passed away on Saturday and got his start acting because one of the actors who was supposed to play a flying monkey showed up drunk.  Windsor said in the past he had been identified as the monkey who flew off with Toto, but said there were several actors involved in the part.
