Margaret Hamilton

MARGARET HAMILTON (1902-1985) started out as a kindergarten teacher and loved being around children all her life. She was incapable of giving a bad performance and brightened many a film.

The Wizard of Oz (1939)Haven't you seen The Wizard of Oz (1939)? Her best known film, Margaret Hamilton was wonderful in the dual role of Miss Gulch and the Wicked Witch Of The West.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Babes In Arms (1939) I always wished she would send the flying monkeys after Mickey Rooney, but it was not to be.
The Night Strangler (1973) Margaret plays a character with the delightful name of Hester Crabwell.
My Little Chickadee (1940)
These Three (1936) Margaret plays Agatha, a maid.
