    Margaret Hamilton, who played the Wicked Witch, was coated in green makeup that was copper-based, which was incredibly toxic; once her makeup was applied, she couldn’t eat, and had to subsist on a liquid diet and drink from a straw. As if that weren’t dangerous enough, when she filmed her fiery exit from Munchkinland, the makeup caused her to suffer third degree burns on her hands and second degree burns on her face.
