Oz in the News 10.23.10

Joe Maddalena interview, Hollywood Treasure on Syfy delivers the goods I mean the ruby slippers to me are like van Gogh’s Starry Night. They are the most symbolic thing of film history. So,  there are four pairs that survived.  There’s a missing pair that we think existed that no one knows what happened to it. There’s the rumor Toto might have eaten a pair. And then 2005 a pair was stolen out of the Judy Garland museum so one of the themes of the show is we’re searching for the ruby slippers everywhere.  I think the touring pair belonged to Michael Shore and in 2005, the week of Katrina, the Judy Garland museum was robbed and the slippers were stolen.  It didn’t get very much news because it was the week of Katrina and it wasn’t a big news story obviously, so we’re basically picking up that trail of 2005 and we’re actively searching and trying to source that. We’re offering a $10,000 cash reward to anybody with the leak that leads to the recovery of these slippers.  And, there’s a rumor that the Tin Man’s costume is in Colorado.
