Ghost On Old Movie Three Men And A Baby, Urban Legend?

I remember years ago one of my nieces telling me there was a ghost of a little boy that showed up unexpectedly on the old movie Three Men And A Baby. So I looked it up on YouTube. It's the clip where Ted Danson and the woman playing his mom are going over to the baby Mary. The "grandmother" in the film picks up the baby and carries her past a window covered with long white sheers. In between and just behind those sheers it looks just like a little boy standing there and looking out. My niece told me that it was the ghost of a little boy of a woman who was somehow distantly connected to the film. Later on I heard it was the ghost of a grieving family in the apartment they filmed this scene in. Only problem with that is they probably filmed that in a sound stage and not an apt. I looked up the You Tube video of the debunker of these types of things in films as well and he claims the figure you see of the little boy there is actually a cardboard cutout of Ted Danson's character Jack and it just looks like a little boy behind those sheer curtains. Only this debunker also says there are no such things as ghosts and I don't go along with that because I've seen a few of those myself so I can't say there are no such things as ghosts. I can't paste the You Tube link here because mylot, to avoid spam, won't let you paste until you have 500 or higher number beside your user I.D. (which is a good idea I think), but you can check this out on You Tube by just going to the video section there and in the search box just type "Three Men And A Baby Ghost" and a couple of videos should come up about it. Still looks like a little boy to me in the scene, standing there, but maybe it is a cardboard cut out. Someone on television just mentioned it tonight on some show and I decided to look up some info about it. Just thought it was interesting, if nothing else.

Wow, that's interesting. I'll have to go back and watch it again myself for that. The thing is, too, with me, I watched that debunker's video about how it's a cut out and how that cardboard cut out could look like a little boy in the movie, but the example he showed just didn't look, at least to me, what looks like a real little boy standing behind those curtains. But like you said, maybe it's just the power of suggestion. Still, I thought it looked too much like a real little boy to be a cut out when I first saw it, but who knows. Thanks for your response. I'll go back and watch again tomorrow. That's interesting.
