You look at the three names below and suggest the closest possible Oz connection to each name you can think of. Sometimes you can do it easily! If I say "Sean Connery" you might reply, "Sean Connery starred in the film Zardoz which is a sci-fi movie about a world ruled by an Earth man hiding behind a gigantic head named Zardoz, a contraction of wiZARD of OZ." This is two degrees of Ozzy separation.
If I said "Roddy McDowall" you could say, "Roddy McDowall starred in Planet of the Apes with Maurice Evans who played Dr. Zaius. Evans also played Samantha's father on the TV series Bewitched! where he was married to Samantha's mother, who was played by Agnes Moorehead. And Moorehead played Mombi in the 1960 Shirley Temple television movie The Land of Oz." This is four degrees of Ozzy separation.

I will not publish or post any of the proposed Oz Connection answers until Thursday morning. This will give everyone a chance to answer. Remember there is no single answer - there are many different ways you might connect these three to Oz. There is also no prize beyond the fact that it's a great way to show your own obsessive geekiness and superb cultural knowledge! Have fun!
Give me your best Oz Connection for the following three people:
