If you've ever wondered what happened to Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones hat from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Henry Cavill's Superman cape from Man of Steel or Judy Garland's ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, the answer is that they're all actually in the same place.

Now here's a question we're sure nobody's asked Tara, the cat who has been applauded the world over for saving a 4-year-old boy from a vicious dog: Have you ever considered an acting career?

With the click of her heels – all three times – Dorothy secured her rightful place in our hearts forever.
Just as there is no place like home, there is no movie quite like The Wizard of Oz, which has inspired generations of movie watchers to skip down the yellow brick road since its 1939 release.
That's right: It's been 75 years since the world was introduced to Dorothy (a doe-eyed Judy Garland) and the gang (the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion) on their Technicolor journey through Oz.
As the Academy honors the cinema classic at this year's Oscars, we're still singing along to "Over the Rainbow" (which won Best Original Song of 1939) – and here's why.

It's hard to believe that it was 75 years ago when we first heard the phrase, "There's no place like home." But the beloved Wizard of Oz is celebrating its diamond anniversary this year, and the film will be recognized with a tribute at this Sunday's Oscars.
In the 75 years since the movie hit, though, a lot has changed. We have the Internet, cell phones and iPads, oh my! Plus, you know, commercial air travel, microwaves, color TV and a whole host of other inventions we're surely forgetting. So, how would access to these technologies have changed things in Oz? Well for starters, it might not have even ever happened …

Margaret Pellegrini, one of the original Munchkins from the 1939 classic movie The Wizard of Oz, has died. She was 89.
Pellegrini suffered a stroke Monday at her Glendale, Ariz., home and died Wednesday at a Phoenix-area hospital.
Her death was confirmed by Ted Bulthaup, a Woodbridge, Ill., resident who owns a Chicago theater where Pellegrini and other Munchkins have made special appearances. He says he learned of it from Pellegrini's relatives.

Nostalgic fans of Dorothy, Toto and witches (both good and bad) will soon get to revisit the wonderful world of Oz – this time in a new film from Disney that takes viewers back in time before the beloved wizard behind the curtain found his magical groove.
Disney released its trailer for the ambitious prequel Oz The Great and Powerful, which stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-town circus magician who is swept away in a cyclone to ... somewhere over the rainbow. Diggs thinks he's found fame and fortune in the magical kingdom until he runs into trio of witches who doubt he's the wizard they were hoping for and expecting.
Signing on as witches for the 3-D movie, directed by Sam Raimi and set for a March 8 release, are Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, who will play Glinda, the good witch of the original classic, The Wizard of Oz.
