Wow. What a title. “Haunting Real Life-Death in the Wizard of Oz”. We’ve all heard the story about a person dying on the set of the Wizard of Oz. Some say it was a distraught extra hanging themselves, others speculate it was a crew member who was caught up in the rigging. The scene occurs right after the witch appears and the gang gallops back into the forest. Watch the video below and see if you can catch it. Then I will tell you what really happened (I think).

Here's the "original" VHS version:

That video with the person swinging in the back ground is haunting. Now watch it again, but with my theory (and what I’ve read) in mind: It’s an animal. Either a horse or a stork dipping and raising it’s head.
