The women who played Dorothy has gone on record saying the rumor is true. The bird in the background "answer" is simply another version of the tale. In the end, the whole thing is probably false and the shadow is just a shadow of something off screen. However, it is the only rumor of those I mentioned that was said to be true by a few people on the movie (the other people involved I can no longer remember). That's all I meant. : ) Either way, the silly rumor makes the VHS version of the film sought after.Not to totally derail the topic, and I might be misunderstanding what you mean, but the Wizard of Oz rumor is false (it was a large bird in the background), and the one about the Rescuers is actually true.
There's actually a documentary about it somewhere..which is how I found out about it.
Back on topic, I have to agree with this. I'm still in the belief blu-rays will die off and I refuse to buy into them. There's really just no point. Sony can try to push it on me all they want with their Blu-ray playing consoles, it's just not happening lol. My DVDs, and VHS movies take care of the job.One thing I loved about DVDs was the language options and the extras, that you couldn't put in a VHS. As soon as Blu-Rays started flooding the market, DVDs were packaged with only the bare essentials (original version, dubbed version, random single extra and a featurette telling you what a backwards moron you are for not having bought a Blu-Ray). Like they wanted to make the consumers believe that DVDs became worse and are now obsolete. What does Blu-ray have that DVDs don't? Better resolution. That's it.
