Michele Norris talks with Jim Ginavan, director of the non-profit Oz Museum in Wamego, Kan., about a pair of original ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz that were stolen last month from a children's museum in Grand Rapids, Minn.
The pair was one of only four remaining pairs worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 film classic. The shoes belong to Michael Shaw, a Hollywood collector, and were insured for $1 million.
Ginavan is coordinating this year's Oztoberfest — a Dorothy-themed celebration that, for now, will go on without her iconic ruby slippers.
