From the Harry Earles File: Harry Earles (1902-1985) and his sisters, Gracie, Daisy and Tiny (all pictured here) were part of the “The Doll Family,” a multitalented family of dwarf entertainers. Harry, of course, starred (along with Daisy) in Tod Browning’s Freaks (1932). Like so many of the stars of Freaks and the film’s director, Tod Browning, Harry’s subsequent film career didn’t fare so well. He was one of the heads of the Lollipop Guild in The Wizard of Oz. After that, his film career was over. But Harry and his sisters cleaned up in the circus world and bought a lavish joint in Florida, where they all retired in comfort.
