An interesting article popped up on my feed this day. It was about Margaret Hamilton, an actor on stage and in film. Not familiar with her name? She had one of the most iconic lines in all film history: “I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!” That right, the Wicked Witch of the West, whose cackle this day, still sends shivers through me. In the entire movie she was on screen for only 12 minutes, including the memorable melting scene at the movie’s end.
In what I think is a twist of fate, laced with irony…can you guess what he chosen profession was before she began acting? She was a kindergarten teacher and described by all as a gentle and loving teacher. Which I am sure is true…but it is tough for me to get past the cackle. I remember it like it was yesterday.
