Before you toss that cardboard box, take a look inside. The contents might have a connection to a classic Hollywood film.
According to the Washington Post, one of the dresses Judy Garland wore in “The Wizard of Oz” had been missing for many years after being given to a friend. That dress was recently found by a drama department professor at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
“As soon as I popped the top off the box, I knew what it was,” Matt Ripa told the Post. “I saw that blue gingham and I just started laughing and laughing. I mean, I’m still laughing. Because I was shocked, holding a piece of Hollywood history right in my hands.”
