Lee Dixon (January 22, 1910 – January 8, 1953) was an actor in the 1930s and 1940s.[1] He appeared in Hollywood musicals and other films as well as on the Broadway stage.


Dixon is best remembered for creating the role of Will Parker in the original Broadway production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Oklahoma! In the summer of 1942, Dixon created the role of the Scarecrow, at The Municipal Opera Association of St. Louis, in the first stage production of The Wizard of Oz to use the songs from the 1939 MGM film. Evelyn Wyckoff played Dorothy Gale, Donald Burr played the Tin Man, Edmund Dorsey played the Cowardly Lion, Helen Raymond played the Wicked Witch of the West, Patricia Bowman played the Sorceress of the North, aka Glinda, and John Cherry played the Wizard of Oz.


Dixon died of alcoholism on January 8, 1953, in New York City, fourteen days before his forty-third birthday.
