Sometimes, the myths surrounding movies are so strong that over time, you begin to believe they are true. Lets take a look and some of them, shall we?
The Urban Legend: As Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man head down the yellow brick road, you can see a mysterious figure dangling from a rope in the background. For years it was believed that a munchkin or Dorthy's understudy hung themselves while the cameras were rolling during production, unbeknownst to the director, various stagehands, and the actors on the screen.
The Truth: What's actually moving in the background is a large exotic bird on loan from the Zoo. The urban legend started when The Wizard of Oz was released on VHS in 1989, and persisted over the decades, until the most recent Blu-ray edition of the American classic reveals the myth as false.
The Urban Legend: This one SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME WHEN I WAS A KID After Three Men and a Baby was released on VHS in 1990, a legend emerged—about an hour into the movie,Ted Danson and his characters mother are walking through Danson's house. In the background, you can see a super creepy figure behind the curtains of one of the windows. the legend goes that this figure was the ghost of a some kid who used to live in the house where Three Men and a Baby was being shot. The most common myth is that the boy committed suicide with a shotgun, which is why the house was vacant for the movie shoot. i think this one still scares the crap out of me...
The Truth: The mysterious figure behind the curtain is a cardboard cutout of Danson's character wearing a top hat and tails; it was used as a prop for a storyline that was eventually cut out of the movie. The house is also not a real house, but a set on a soundstage in Toronto. THANK GOODNESS
