Who Stole the Ruby Slippers? This case needs to be solved. I believe by making a documentary on the stolen slippers we could raise awareness that would possibly lead to new information coming forward about the whereabouts of the shoes. I will be traveling to Grand Rapids, MN to conduct on-screen interviews with some of the key players in the investigations and find out the current status of the case. The film will be finished by July 2014, just in time for the 75th Anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz”. I’ll be submitting the finished short film to festivals across the country in hope of starting a nationwide conversation about the stolen shoes.
