Gus Wayne was among the over 120 little people who appeared as Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz (1939). Those remembering old-time radio, may recognize Wayne as the diminutive red bellhop who would holler out "Caaall for Philip Morris." Wayne also spent time as one of the little Sunshine Bakers representing the Sunshine Baking Company. He became "Mr. Lucky," the official representative of the Lucky Casino in Las Vegas during the 1960s. In the early '70s, Wayne abandoned acting and began working for Piper Aircraft. He remained with the company through his retirement in 1980. Wayne was married to actress Olive Brasno for 37 years. Wayne and Brans died within two days of each other in early 1998.
