A Few Favorite Memories of Harry Earles
- As "Tweedledee," a carnival midget who poses as a baby to assist ventriloquist Professor Echo (Lon Chaney)
and strongman Hercules (Victor McLaglen) in committing crimes in Tod Browning's silent version of The Unholy Three (1925).
- Reprising his role as "Tweedledee," again assisting Echo (Lon Chaney) and Hercules
(Ivan Linow this time) in the sound version of The Unholy Three (1930), directed by Jack Conway.
A very significant film, especially since it's Lon Chaney's only talkie.
- As "Hans," a freakshow star attraction married and nearly murdered by a conniving woman and her strongman boyfriend — until the other freaks
turn the tables on the evil plotters in the horrific climax — in Tod Browning's Freaks (1932).
- As one of the three "Lollypop Guild" Munchkin singers in the fantasy classic The Wizard of Oz (1939).
