(Note: They used aluminum paste makeup on Jack Haley to ensure they didn't have the same problem that Epsen had)
What a lot of people may not know is that he did record "If I Only Had a Heart". I really like it but in the end, I am glad that Jack Haley ended up with the role. I have a great fondness for the tin man. He is so sweet and gentle. While Buddy Ebsen does a wonderful version of this song. I love Jack Haley's angelic voice and can't imagine anyone else as the Tin Man.
Interesting Fact 1: Did you know that Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland's (aka Dorthy) daughter, became Jack Haley's (the Tin Man's) daughter-in-law? Liza was married to Jack Haley, Jr.
Interesting Fact 2: Did you know that Jack Haley (the Tin Man) was the Godfather to John Lahr, who was Bert Lahr's (the Lion) son?
Anyway....here is Buddy Epsen's version of "If I Only Had a Heart"
