Support this Film: ‘Who Stole the Ruby Slippers?’

In August 28, 2005, a million dollar heist took place. No evidence was found and the perpetrators are still at large to this day. What’s interesting is that this is not your usual bank heist. In fact, it involves one of the most iconic movie memorabilia from the most watched film ever - Judy Garland’s Ruby Slippers used in 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz”. That pair of shoes is valued at $2 million. Amazing!

Theodore James’ “Who Stole the Ruby Slippers?” is going to be a documentary film that will look into the obviously stalled investigation process in the hopes that it could help with solving the eight year old case. Interviews will be made with key players from the investigation team. The film is scheduled to be released before the 75th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz” sometime in July 2014.

The documentary’s filmmaker is known for his works such as HBO’s “Superheroes” and “Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia” which participated in the 2013 TriBeCa Film Festival.

Support “Who Stole the Ruby Slippers?” via its Kickstarter page. It has 6 days to go before funding ends.
