Olga Nida Carmena Nardone (June 8, 1921 – September 24, 2010) was an actress and one of the last surviving Munchkins from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz,[1] in which she played a member of the Lullaby League. She was known as "Little Olga" and "Princess Olga" and was one of the smallest of the Wizard of Oz Munchkins, standing at just 3 foot 4 inches (101.6 cm) tall.[2] The fact that she had done ballet solos in vaudeville helped get her the part.

She was born on June 8, 1921 in Newton, Massachusetts to Louise M. and Leonardo B. Nardone. She died on September 24, 2010 in Nonantum, Massachusetts of natural causes, at the age of 89.
