An anonymous donor has offered a US$1 million (Dh3.67m) reward for information leading to the recovery of a pair of Judy Garland’s sequinned, 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 still exist, including one on display at the Smithsonian Institution 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 film. The reward offer requires the exact location of the slippers and the perpetrator’s name. The 10-year anniversary of the theft is coming up in August. – AP
