[moderately worn copy, diagonal crease at bottom corner of front cover, slight curling to covers]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) This tale of the iconographic power (and great value) of the original ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 film classic "The Wizard of Oz" exposes "the clandestine and often treacherous underground of movie memorabilia, [and] may be the film industry's most bizarre account of ambition, greed, obsession, and deception. [It] opens the vault doors of studio treasure troves and also reveals an unbelievable account of marauders, thieves, innocent 'soles' and a few heels, all sidestepping each other in this classic tale of fatal attraction." Proof (if any was needed) that the movies can make people nuts.
