What are the Wicked Witch’s flying monkeys chanting in “The Wizard of Oz” ?

Wizard of oz monkey

Unlike the book the flying monkeys are intelligent enough to take orders, but not enough to actually speak. They still make noise it’s true, I went and watched the clip even to see. They kind of make a high pitched cooing sound. Technically it is just a sound, there are no words to make out […]

Who is Darth Vader’s Father?
