Unpacking the myth of The Wizard of Oz’s hanging Munchkin

My grandfather worked as a cableman on the set when the movie was made. All the forest scenes in The Wizard of Oz were filmed before the Munchkin land scenes and so none of the dwarf actors would have been present. If you pay close attention to the this sene The woods with the Tin Man there is a large crane walking in the background. We've taken that as a starting point, that that myth is actually true and the Munchkin has actually hung himself. That anyone could believe a scene featuring a real suicide would have been left intact in a classic film for over fifty years is simply incredible. I don't know, it could be a tactic to keep this classic movie a interesting topic. It's obviously not a suicide since if it had been, it woudln't have just been a swinging motion in the background -- the body would have dropped straight down and twitched and convulsed as bodies do when they are hanged.

The hanging munchkin is in a different part of the movie. From what I have heard, that sounds the most reasonable, is that it was not a person or a bird, it was actually a sandbag that had fallen down. You will see these birds throughout the scene. That should settle the entire arguement but this was noticed back when the movie was first released and viewers could actually rewind, pause, play and review the scene over and over and took tell you the truth it does look like someone is hanging there. And whether one believes that the figure on the film is a munchkin or a stagehand, it is simply impossible that a human being could have fallen onto a set actively being used for filming, and yet none of the dozens of people present — actors, directors, cameramen, sound technicians, light operators — noticed or reacted to the occurrence.
