August 13 - Cowardly Lion Day
Bert Lahr (August 13, 1895 – December 4, 1967) was a Tony Award-winning actor.
Fittingly known to be a "Leo" for his horoscope, Bert Lahr is always remembered as the Cowardly Lion (and the farmer "Zeke") in "The Wizard of Oz". But during his acting career, he had been known for being in burlesque, vaudeville, and Broadway.
Lahr uttered the phrase "Heavens to Murgatroyd!" which was later popularized by cartoon character Snagglepuss.
