TERRE HAUTE — An exhibit titled Words Flow Into Water is scheduled to open at 7 p.m. Friday at the Halcyon Gallery, 25 S. Seventh St. The show continues through May 25.

1939 ‘Wizard of Oz’ Myths and trivia
• Buddy Ebsen was originally cast as the Tin Man but had to relinquish the role to Jack Haley because of an allergic reaction to the silver dust makeup.
• It’s long been reported that Shirley Temple was supposed to play Dorothy but an expert on the MGM movie, John Fricke, said the Oz property was specifically purchased by MGM as a Garland showcase vehicle.
