Storyline

THE SLIPPERS pulls back the Wizard's curtain on the unbelievable story and cultural impact of Dorothy's Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz. Through first-hand accounts and archival interviews, THE SLIPPERS will detail the life of the Ruby Slippers after their sale at the famed 1970 MGM auction. Discovered by costumer Kent Warner, it is unclear how many pairs were found and how many pairs exist. That mystery has only helped to propel the shoes to the forefront of the Hollywood memorabilia market. They have been bought, stolen, and coveted by many. They are considered the most important piece of Hollywood memorabilia and the catalyst for the creation of Hollywood memorabilia collecting.

A Charming Story about a Beloved Piece of our Past
14 March 2016 | by JustCuriositySee all my reviews

The Slippers was well-received in its world premiere at SXSW. It is a delightful documentary about unbelievable shenanigans that have played out around multiple sets the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz. The story is full of quirky characters and strange events that have unfolded as the various pairs of ruby slippers have traveled the world. The slippers are probably the most beloved and treasured piece of iconic movie memorabilia as take us all back to the magical land of Oz. The story of the slippers also serves as a lens to explain the growth of the Hollywood memorabilia market which has exploded in the last several decades. This is a must-see for anyone who loves old Hollywood movies. The film made me want to re-watch the Wizard of Oz which I had watched in many years. There is no place like home.
