One of the actors playing a munchkin hanged himself during the making of The Wizard of Oz - and in this shot, his body can be seen hanging from a tree. Ah, this perennial old internet chestnut.
The grim claim that a Munckin suicide can be glimpsed in The Wizard of Oz has resurfaced plenty of times across the years, but has been vigorously debunked - although critics still disagree on exactly what the "swinging" shape in question is.
According to the rumour-checking website Snopes, however, the actors playing the Munckins hadn't yet arrived on the MGM set when the scene was filmed, meaning that there's absolutely no chance the rumour is true. Instead, either a stray bird the official studio line or a clumsy stage hand caught on camera is most likely to blame.
The story about the suicidal Munchkin actor who was claimed to have killed himself after being turned down by his love interest appears to have been invented at some point in the late Eighties.
