  • After learning about another auction of one (yes, in case you didn't know there are several pairs of ruby slippers) of the ruby slippers, I decided to re-read this fascinating book about the rediscovery of the ruby slippers. It is so sad that in the 1960s and 1970s, that the large Hollywood movie studios were trashing their collections, auctioning them off, and even throwing them away. This story is about rediscovering the many pairs (no one knows for sure how many!) of ruby slippers after spend [...]


  • As a HUGE fan of the movie, The Wizard of Oz, I loved this book. It read more like a mystery in that it seeks to discover just how many pairs of ruby slippers there actually were, where they were found, and who owns them.I learned more about the history of the movie and those involved, not to mention the insanity of the 1970s in which MGM decided to rid of their costumes by auctions and yard sales. It was shocking reading about where some of the iconic costumes from Hollywood's Golden Era ended [...]


  • I must admit I'm not a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz, I checked out this book after seeing a Hollywood Treasure episode on SYFY about the ruby slippers. I thought there was a lot of mystery surrounding the shoes and as a movie fan found it peaking my curiosity, when they brought the author in as an expert and mentioned his book I decided I should learn a little more. I did find the book interesting and learned some fun facts about the actual movie, the history of how Hollywood memorabilia became [...]


  • Even if you have seen The Search for the Ruby Slippers documentary, this firsthand account of Rhys Thomas's investigation of the ruby slippers -- their mysterious origin and the truth behind what remains -- is a page-turner. An added bonus is insight into now-defunct studio costume/wardrobe operations. My only regret is that Thomas has released an update edition that includes the 2005 "traveling shoes" theft and the 2013 "Witch's shoes" auction and purchase by Leonardo DiCaprio (and Angel Donors [...]


  • I loved this book. The fascination with the Ruby Slippers doesn't end. It's history is one of drama and intrigue. Especially fascinating to me was learning the ins and outs of Hollywood in the 1970s, the characters and the underworld of Hollywood. It was a time when the past was little valued but some had the foresight and love for the glamour of the past to save these rare costumes - costumes that the studios were willing to let go in basic garage sales. This is such a fascinating book, I want [...]


  • I'll bet you thought the Ruby Slippers were in the Smithsonian. Well, they are - but that's only one pair! This book follows the history of each pair made for the film - where they are now and how they were discovered, along with the fakes. Fascinating stuff, well-told. For any fan of the film, this is must reading.


  • This nonfiction book reads like mystery novel as the author exposes the uncovering of several pairs of the coveted Ruby Slippers of Oz. Who knew there was such intrigue regarding the famous children's tale. Worth the read for all fans of all things Ozian as well as fans of film history.
