Today, in history, America went “Over the Rainbow”

The Wizard of OzToday, 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.
