There's no place like Minnesota
Minnesota cops are closing in on the heartless thief who stole a pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. The $1 million shoes were snatched on Aug. 27, 2005, from the Judy Garland Museum in her Grand Rapids, Minn., hometown. "The ruby slippers are the holy grail of movie memorabilia," said Brian Cummings, pop culture art appraiser and consultant. Gawker, meanwhile, is all over this who-done-it.
