8 The Munchkin Suicide

In the 1939 MGM film The Wizard of Oz – more specifically in the scene where Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Woodsman were heading down the road on their way to Emerald City – there seems to be a shot displaying someone just committed suicide by hanging in the tree up ahead.

Many claimed that it was a munchkin who hanged himself. Proponents of the urban legend suggest during the 1988 restoration of the movie, the incident was edited out and replaced by a bird.
