Billy Barty
GLENDALE, CABilly Barty, the 3-foot-10 actor whose career spanned seven decades and all types of roles, died here Dec. 23, 2000, of heart failure. He had been hospitalized for heart problems and a lung infection. He was 76. MSTies will remember him as the imp in episode 806 - THE UNDEAD. He kept doing movies during this period, but one movie he was *not* in, perhaps surprisingly, was 1939's "The Wizard of Oz." "I would have really liked being in 'The Wizard of Oz,'" he later noted. "But, when I went over to MGM, they told me I was too young. By law, anybody under the age of 18 could only work so many hours a day and had to go home at five or six o'clock at night. So the studio hired little people over 18 and worked them as long and as hard as was deemed necessary." In 1942, with Vaudeville on the wane, Barty went back to school, attending Los Angeles City College and Los Angeles State College, majoring in journalism. "I lettered in basketball and football, and, not only wasn't I ever seriously injured, the football coach designed seven plays around me. My position was left halfback and I once played in the L.A. Coliseum." In the late 40s, he drifted back into show business, getting his big break when he joined the Spike Jones band in 1952. Audiences adored him and before long he was being paid more than twice what a majority of Jones' "City Slickers" ensemble were getting. In 1957, Billy helped found The Little People of America to educate both average sized and diminutive people about the unique problems of the short statured. The organization provides medical, social and vocational guidance and has branches outside the U.S. in England, Germany, Australia and Holland. The Billy Barty Foundation, another offshoot, created in 1975, provides about $30,000 a year in scholarships. You can find out more at

Billy Barty Billy was born William Job Bertanzetti in Pennsylvania in 1924. His parents were average sized. For a little guy, he sure overcame a lot of obstacles. Makes me think how lucky and lazy a lot of us really are. At his tallest, Billy was 3 foot 9, and a stone cold fox. Billy’s dad got a job as a machinist for Columbia pictures, and the family moved out to the West Coast. Billy had a terrific personality, and was a genuinely nice guy. It wasn’t long before his unusual looks landed him parts in a few films. He found steady work after that, but decided to chuck it all in, and go to school to become a sports journalist. After graduating, he returned to the business, and with television being the big thing, he found even more work. While constantly finding work, Billy also found time to start up several groups to bring the needs of "little people" public. His condition was called Cartilage Hair Syndrome Hypoplasia. Billy founded the Little People of America and the Billy Barty Foundation , which provided scholarships for other little people.

Billy Barty Mr. Barty was born in Pennslvania on October 25, 1924. His family moved to Hollywood when he was three, where he immediately started working in the motion picture industry. "My father carried me in his arms in front of the old Goldwyn studoies," he recalls,"and told me to do a head-spin for the director of 'Wedded Blister.' The director thought it was cute and put it in the movie." Billy Barty has been in show business most of his life. He travelled extensively in vaudeville with an act called "Billy Barry and Sisters." "My father managed the business side of things and my mother looked after our daily needs. My sisters always complained because the billing never mentioned their names. I had two sisters-5'4" and 5'5"- and I was only about 2'8" in those days." By the time he was ten, Billy had appeared in many films, playing the role of Mickey Rooney's kid brother in the Mick Maguire comedies and appearing in "Gold Diggers of 1933," "Footlight Parade" and other great Busby Berkely movies including "Nothing Sacred" and the original Warner Bros. production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," in which Micky Rooney played Puck and Billy played Mustard Seed. He took time off from performing to attend a professional school in Hollywood, along with such celeberties as Mickey Rooney and Jane Withers. "It was an accredited school," says Barty. "I finished my last two years of high school there before moving on to Los Angeles City College and, subsequently, Los Angeles State, where I majored journalism. I intended becoming a sports writer and annoucner, but I became involved with some amateur shows, and all of a sudden I was back in show business."

Billy Barty Billy Barty will be the first to tell you that spending as much time as he did behind the mask of Gwildor began to do bizarre things to his mind.
"After about 14 weeks of this, your ideas about what really is strange looking get turned around," says the 73-year-old actor of the time spent inside the makeup of his "Masters of the Universe" alter ego. "In fact, by filming's end, it had gotten to the point where people not in makeup were beginning to look strange to me."
But the grind of taking complex makeup off and putting it on each day, something that took several hours in Michael Westmore's care at each end, didn't dampen Barty's spirits about playing the multidimensional Gwildor.
"Gwildor is this technological genius who is always on the brink of a major new discovery, but has no idea where this discovery will lead him," Barty remarks. "He's an eccentric personality who knows everything and yet is not quite sure of himself."
Barty, who recently returned from Israel where he completed the fairy tale features "Rumpelstiltskin" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," has spent a good part of his acting career having his identity masked by latex or rubber.

Billy Barty
from CNN Showbuss By PAUL CHAVEZ, Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) Billy Barty, a 3-foot-10 actor whose career spanned seven decades and all types of roles, died Saturday of heart failure. He was 76. Barty had been hospitalized in Glendale for heart problems and a lung infection, said his publicist, Bill York. Barty appeared in his first Hollywood feature in 1927 at the age of 3 and performed for radio, television and on Broadway. He played a number of outrageous characters, including a wizard in the movie ``Willow'' (1988), a tongue-in-cheek role as a German spy in ``Under the Rainbow'' (1981) with Chevy Chase, a suspected stalker in ``Foul Play'' (1978), and an agent in ``Day of the Locust'' (1975). In the late 20s and early 30s, he played Mickey Rooney's kid brother in the ``Mickey McGuire'' series of comedy shorts. He later had several TV appearances, including his own children's show called ``Billy Barty's Big Show'' in Los Angeles in the 1960s, and he appeared on several shows over the past three decades, most recently an episode of ``Frasier.'' In 1957, Barty founded Little People of America, an advocacy group for others with dwarfism. He later started a non-profit foundation that bears his name to help improve the quality of life for little people, the term he said he preferred.

Billy Barty, Founder October 25, 1924 - December 23, 2000 Our wonderful friend passed away peacefully in his sleep after a brief illness. The Barty Family and all of us at the Billy Barty Foundation thank you for your prayers in this time of great sorrow. We mourn the passing of this great humanitarian and thank God for the privilege of having known His humble servant. Please feel free to contact us via phone, fax, mail, or e-mail. Your messages of comfort will be forwarded to the Barty Family promptly. This message is straight from Billy's heart: Hi, I'm Billy Barty. Welcome to our Webpage!! I'm sure many of you are wondering what we're all about. For those of you who typed in the word "dwarf" on your search engine expecting to find the Disney homepage, stick around. You'll learn something and maybe even find a chance to do a good deed! I am a dwarf. This means I was born with a medically recognized condition that makes my body smaller than the average person's. The name of my condition is Cartilage Hair Syndrome Hypoplasia, but you can just call me Billy. Most of us with dwarfism prefer to be described as "Little People". And please, put the emphasis on the word "People." We did not spring from the pages of a storybook or emerge from an enchanted forest. We are not magical beings and we are not monsters. We are parents and sons and daughters. We are doctors and lawyers and realtors and teachers. We dream, cry, laugh, shout, fall in love, and make mistakes. We are no different from you.

Actor Danny Woodburn
NBC's "Seinfeld"
From Vaudeville to talkies, he's worked with seven decades of stars. He's shared the screen with the likes of Mickey Rooney James Cagney Ruby Keeler Ginger Rogers Rod Steiger Val Kilmer Ron Howard Amy Irving and Goldie Hawn . Your grandparents may remember his movies from the '30s and '40s, and you may know him from blockbusters in the '80s and '90s. How many stars can boast that? In fact, he has one of the most prolific Hollywood careers, with more than 200 movies and countless television appearances to his credit. And through his work in film and television, Billy Barty has become a legendary actor. Barty's also worked tirelessly to change the public's perception of little people. Today, little people are finally taking their rightful role as respected actors, rather than novelties. And "Seinfeld's" Danny Woodburn and "Drew Carey's" Debbie Carrington prove that Barty's work has not been in vain.

The High Aldwin
Billy Barty
by Bill Warren When Ron Howard, George Lucas and the Willow team selected Billy Barty to play the High Aldwin, the magician ruler of the Nelwyn, undoubtedly they chose the 3' 9" actor due to his acting talent and star qualityBarty is probably the best-known little person in the acting profession.  But the choice was also soundly rooted in reality, for Barty is the founder of Little People of America, the most important and influential organization of its kind in the world.  In real life as in the world of Willow , Barty is a leader of little people. The Bugaloos and H. R. Pufnstuf .  In the 1970's and early '80's, he had oportunites, rare for a little person, to play dramatic roles.  He's proudest of his appearances it Day of the Locust and W. C. Fields and Me Because he has been in Hollywood so long, it's hardly a surprise that Barty and Willow director Ron Howard are old friends.  "I've known him since he was a boy," Barty notes.  "During the shooting of Willow, I called him aside at one point and said, 'Ron, I don't know how to address you.  Mr. Howard, Ronald, director, or how?'  He said, 'Billy, you've known me since I was nine.  Call me Ron.' "I always find out how the director wants it done.  Everybody interprets things differently, you know.  First of all, you hire people who are going to do the part right.  So by directing, you help them, you don't teach them.  In the case of
