  • Okay, anon, since you are the all knowing one of the Wizard of Oz, why does it look so much like a bird (and not a deer) and why does this exist?

  • I don't think it looks real myself and Snopes calls it false... I feel confident calling it fake.

  • I have heard of this before but I don't own a copy of the movie so can't check for myself and this copy is really blurry and hard to see. In this clip it looks like a bird opening its wings to me. But, like I said, its really blurry and hard to tell.

  • I've got an old copy of the movie around here somewhere, and I have it on DVD. I've heard the myth, but IDK if I believe it or not. I thought it occurred in another part of the movie, though. I always doubted that it was real, but who knows. I don't remember there being a huge bird in the background when I watched my old copy. I might dig it out later and hook my VCR back up and watch that part and zoom in a little. Right now, I'm still a skeptic.

  • I heard it was a munchkin that hung himself. I've watched the scene many times and it looks like something swinging to me. Who knows?!?!?
