   An anonymous donor has offered a $1 million reward for credible info leading to a pair of Judy Garland’s sequined, ruby red slippers stolen from a museum in her Minnesota hometown. The late actress wore the slippers in The Wizard of Oz. Three other pairs of shoes still exist, including one on display at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington.

   John Kelsch, executive director of the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, says the donor is from Arizona and is a huge fan of Garland and the 1939 movie. The reward offer requires the recovery of the slippers and the perpetrator’s name.

   The 10-year anniversary of the theft is in August. The slippers were insured for $1 million. Kelsch says they could be worth $2 million to $3 million now. An actual book was written about the crime.

   I can guarantee that the thief did not have a green face and ride a broom…
