The famous ruby- red slippers from the classic movie, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ were found by the FBI and have been recovered. This pair of slippers is one of only a few historic pairs left from the filming of the fan-favorite movie in 1939. However, tracking down these remarkable shoes was not easy. An investigation for the sparkling shoes has been in effect since 2005 when they were stolen from a Minnesota museum that contained other precious memorabilia from the movie. The shoes are said to be worth a lot of money but are also very sought after due to the movie’s following. The FBI became involved in the case when people were coming forward with varying information about the shoe’s whereabouts and the plot of the theft. The dazzling slippers were retrieved on an undercover mission and were immediately sent to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History to be studied and compared to other pair they had in possession. The search for these iconic shoes was very important due to mass love many people have for the movie and its’ artifacts. The ruby red slippers that Dorothy famously wore down the yellow brick road are a dear remembrance of the ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and many are relieved that they can be on display for movie lovers to see. The FBI is still looking for information on the theft of the shoes, but may can rest easier knowing that they are back in good hands and can be admired forever.
