Rating: 2/5 -- Mr. Rash has earnestness and a touch of eccentricity, but he doesn't have the lighthearted wit to keep this kind of comedy working.

...Sight-gags abound....The finale is also a rather witty surprise...

Description by OLDIES.com:

It was the largest gathering of little people ever, drawn from all over to appear in the movie of a classic children's story. They weren't in Kansas anymore. They were in Hollywood, home of wide-open lifestyles and nonstop parties.

This colorful screwball comedy uses the premise of 150 little people playing The Wizard of Oz's Munchkins housed in one Culver City hotel - and indulging in some high-energy partying - to spin zany screen mayhem with touches of romance (between G-man Chevy Chase and casting maven Carrie Fisher) and cockeyed espionage (involving German agent Billy Barty and Japanese spy Mako). Co-stars Eve Arden, Adam Arkin, Joseph Maher and Pat McCormick deliver tall orders of laughter, while smashing into small-fry shenanigans at every turn. There's no place like... Under the Rainbow.

Product Description:

When Gestapo and Secret Service Agents, 150 midgets (extras for "The Wizard of Oz") and a Japanese camera club converge on a California hotel, the predictable result is total chaos. A real dud at the box office.
