Welcome to the Internet's first and only
Ruby Slipper Fan Club!
An interesting thing happened
when I set up a small page on my "Judy Garland - The Live Performances!"
web site. I had one single page devoted to the ruby slippers and my fascination
with them. I was shocked at the number of other people that were as
curious and interested in the Holy Grail of movie memorabilia as I was!
For the longest time, I felt like I was alone, but when I set up that original
page, I found things to be quite different. It amazed me that there
were so many others with 'Slipper Fever,' as I like to call it, out there
all around the globe. That single page grew to be a web site of it's own -
the one that you are visiting now. There are separate pages that have
pictures of all the existing authentic ruby slippers with detailed descriptions
- as well as numerous pages that have images of fans personal shoes and Ozzy
artwork. Almost all of the information regarding the authentic ruby
slippers was found in the book, "The Ruby Slippers of Oz," by Rhys Thomas.
As the Ruby Slipper Fan Club Leader,
I'm open to suggestions from other members as to how we should proceed on
the List. The List is always open to topics of conversation relating to primarily
the ruby slippers and anything to do with the 1939 M-G-M classic motion picture,
The Wizard of Oz. We can also discuss
where and when the latest collectibles can be found - and what
everyone thinks about it. If you have any questions about the movie,
there'll be plenty of people here that can answer it for you as well.
If you have the courage you can pour your heart out and tell us what your
brain conjures up as to what Oz means to you.
For any parents that are considering
letting your child join, the List is moderated, as it is open to all age
groups - and everyone should keep that in mind when posting. "Jimminy Cricket"
or "Curses, CURSES!" is about as foul as the language is allowed to get around
As a member of the club if you
have your own pair of ruby slippers, ruby slipper or Oz artwork, an essay
or anything associated with the film that you'd like to share with the rest
of the world, send me your pictures, your scans, your words, and I'll set
up a web page right here on this site for everyone to see. We'd love to have you along - so why not join
us on our journey down our own little yellow brick road!
