The Wizard of Oz Flying Winged Monkey Costume Test Photo from 1938

I adore the Wizard of Oz. When I was young, and it was on TV, I would not have been torn away from the TV for all the chocolate milk in New Jersey. Do this day, the flying monkeys still kind of creep me out and after staring at this photo for the last 30 minutes I can see why. It is just too human. It is like they wrapped a person in flying monkey skin. Which is just wrong.
