The film ‘The Wizard of OZ’ starring Judy Garland as the main character, Dorothy, was first realised back in 1939 on august the 25th, but it is still very popular with all ages today.
Some of the props used in the film will be up for sale in an auction, in December, such as The crystal ball used by the Wicked Witch, which is expected to raise between £25,000 and £38,000 and of course the famous ruby red slippers are expected to go for at least £1.2 million!
They are one of the four pairs used during the film and are seen in the close up of when Dorothy famously taps the shoes together to go home to Kansas.
Owner of the special shoes, Joe Maddalena has said: “This is the most important film prop in the world. There is nothing more famous. They are one of the greatest pieces of pop culture in existence.”
The auction is being held by ‘California’s Profiles in History’ and there will also be a separate auction by of Debbie Reynolds’s memorabilia collection which the original blue and white checked dress with puff-sleeved white blouse will also be available.
The first auction will take place in Los Angeles on the 16th of December.

Katie Price’s welcomes two new members to her family!
Former glamour model Katie Price loves animals as she does like to go horse riding and even has a clothing range for horses and their riders.
She also has a Sphinx Breed cat called Nigel. She has showed her affection for Nigel in the past by saying “He’s probably the ugliest animal in the world but he’s my ugly animal and I love him.
“His name’s Nigel and I got him from my friend who lives in Spain. Nigel’s totally bald, which means you can see and feel him sweating when he’s hot, and he can smell a bit. But he’s quite cute, really, and very cuddly.”
Katie is going to add two more members of the family as she tweeted on Twitter this week saying : “Can’t wait for the weekend me and the children pick up 2 new puppies I have to think of names any suggestions boy and a girl (sic)”
Many suggestions have come up such as “Stinky and Sausage”, “Popeye and Olive” and “Mickey and Minnie”.
They are all quite good names but what do you think? What would you suggest Katie Price called her two new puppies? Write your ideas in the comment box below!
Bruno Mars – Twilight Fan
Bruno Mars has produced and written many songs for different artists including writing songs for Alexandra Burke, Travie McCoy, Sean Kingston, and Flo Rida and co-written B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You” and Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”; but he has recently said he wouldn’t turn down the chance to write with Robert Pattingson. When asked about it he replied: “Why not? I’m down for anyone that wants to work and thinks I can contribute.”
Bruno seems to be a big Twilight star too has he has recently recorded a song for the ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ called ‘It Will Rain.
He explained his ideas behind the song by saying “The ‘Twilight’ movies for me are a love story. But it’s a dark love story.
“And I think the best way to describe the song is: it’s the darker side of love. I think that pretty much sums it up.”
The film of course comes out in November so ‘It Will Rain’ will also go on sale in the UK around then however it will be released Globally (not including the UK) On the 27th September.
There has been rumours that Robert Pattinson wants to make a debut album.
Though he has recorded two tracks for the original ‘Twilight’ soundtrack, the rumours say he will use the break he has during his acting, to produce an album.
A source has oringally said “Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn’t allow it,”
“Now he’s got some weeks to get everything in line before going back to promoting Breaking Dawn.”
The source also described what Rob’s music will sound like saying “The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop,”
R-pattz fans know that he has a keen interest in music as he expressed back in 2009 but decided to stick to his acting career for now and a spokesperson has confirmed the album rumours are not true saying “The report is untrue. He is not working on an album right now,”.
Aww sorry fans! Maybe in the future Rob will pursue his passion for music.
