In reply to: jlp 's message, "Happy 100th Birthday! Football's/Actor Ambrose Schindler, Guitarist Mundell Lowe is 95, Queen Elizabeth is 91, Actor Herbert Kerr is 90, Actress Suzanne Sarrocca is 90, Critic/Playwright Robert Brustein is 90," on Friday, April 21, 04:56:02am

During the end of his college career he also acted in Hollywood, appearing in The Wizard of Oz as Jack Haley's Tin Man stunt double. In one scene, which of course had to be reshot, an overly exuberant Schindler pulled loose The Cowardly Lion's tail as they climbed toward a mountaintop castle to rescue Dorothy from The Wicked Witch of the West. He also appeared in Sailor's Lady (1940). While he enjoyed acting and stunt work, he opted to leave Hollywood to focus on his coaching career.
