Today, August 25, in 1939, The Wizard of Oz opened in the theaters. Have you seen this movie? If you haven’t, you’ve been on a desert island all of your life.
An interesting fact is, there were 4 pairs of ruby slippers used during the filming of this movie. The so-called original ruby slippers used in the movie were auctioned in 2000 for over $600 thousand. Since then, they were stolen. There’s a $1 million dollar reward for the return of the ruby slippers. It would be hilarious if 4 people show up to claim the reward.
