Land Of Oz, Gump Head on Crest

original movie prop

Shirley Temple returned to TV in October 1960 with this color show based on the sequel to the WIZARD OF OZ, filmed at NBC, and starring herself, Jonathan Winters, Agnes Morehead, Sterling Holloway, Ben Blue and old favorite Arthur Treacher with voices by Mel Blanc. The special effects, including this piece, were created by John Chambers, then NBC's resident wizard, who would later win a Special Oscar for PLANET OF THE APES and pioneered facial rubber and foam masks and appliances used on THE OUTER LIMITS, STAR TREK and MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE. The Gump is a character, who once attached to two sofas, and sprinkled with the Powder of Life, allows the heroes to fly from the castle and attack. Shirley, and her kids, liked the piece so much she took it home where it hung in their den for 55 years until sold at her recent estate sale.
