Report: Leonardo Dicaprio buys red slippers from “Wizard of Oz” for Academy Museum of Motion Pictures…

Love Leo Dicaprio or hate him, this makes him a really good guy for this. Leo buys, the red slippers you see in the photo above that were worn by Judy Garland in the legendary film, “The Wizard of Oz”. There were 4 slippers used, and one pair was used for the close up shot seen in the pic above. Leo wasn’t alone on spending money for the slippers, he had help with Steven Spielberg and other donors.

Of course, they wouldn’t reveal how much the slippers are worth (so they wouldn’t attract thieves). They are probably worth a fortune, so I can’t blame Leo for having other people help out. Those slippers are pretty historic and they deserve to be in a museum or some sorts.
