American dwarf singer, dancer and actress (also known as Johnnie Fern or Johnny Fern) who appeared most notably as a Munchkin villager and 'sleepyhead' in the original 1939 The Wizard of Oz movie. Other film roles included Diamond Dolly (the saloon bar girl) in Terror Of Tiny Town (1938), and a little girl (alongside Gary Cooper) in Meet John Doe (1941). Formica also doubled for Shirley Temple in the 1934 movie Bright Eyes, playing parts where Temple was facing away from the camera. Her curly blonde hair was like Temple's and they were the same size. Before the movies, Fern Formica worked in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Diego at the El Cortez Hotel, singing and dancing with Billy Barty among others. She died on 23 January 1995 in Riverside, California.
