Margaret Hamilton accepted her horrific on-screen appearance— replete with gangrenous skin, a jutting jaw, and a sharply hooked nose— having long ago made peace with her lack of physical beauty. “I’m glad I’m homely… My face has given me lots of work,” she confessed twenty- two years after playing the film’s heavy. With good humor, Hamilton recalled one instance of on-set ribbing to Parade’s Karl Kohrs: “They put a sign on my chair, ‘Mag the Hag.’ Why, I just loved it. I’m not sensitive about my looks.” She stubbornly defended her appearance from the time she was a little girl. Her father wanted to take her to a plastic surgeon to have her large nose altered, but she refused, saying “It was mine, and I wanted to keep it.”

"here a camera becomes an instrument of a sharply knowing lyrical poetry that draws its energy from a late-twentieth-century urban scene; and here, as consequence, a poignant vitality and unassuming humanity are rescued from the flow of life’s events."
