Ruby red slippers
PAGE 2
The Oprah Show has booked nearly 30,000 guests, but none as high maintenance as one Hollywood icon. "Oprah loves The Wizard of Oz," producer Kristin Graham says. "It's one of her favorite movies, and it was my job to make sure that the ruby red slippers would get from the Smithsonian to Chicago."

Only the museum's curator is allowed to touch the very slippers Judy Garland wore in the film. Kristin says the 70-year-old slippers were carefully packed in a box of foam for the journey...but that wasn't the only travel accommodation they required. "It is the requirement of the Smithsonian that they have to fly first class," she says. "Not only did they fly first class with us, they had their own ticket."
