Mary William Ethelbert Appleton "Billie" Burke (August 7, 1884 – May 14, 1970) was an American actress. She is primarily known to modern audiences as Glinda the Good Witch of the North in the musical film The Wizard of Oz. She was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance as Emily Kilbourne in Merrily We Live. Burke was also the wife of Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., of Ziegfeld Follies fame, from 1914 until his death.
The dog in The Wizard of Oz was originally supposed to be played by a Dachshund named Otto, however, the studio thought there was still too much post war tenson and replaced Otto with a Norwich terrier. This is one of the original still shots from the movie.
