Operation Ruby Slipper by John Meyer: “Judy Garland is dropped behind enemy lines in 1943 in this espionage thriller; she’s to bring back a photo of a dangerous Nazi physicist with the camera concealed in the heel of her shoe. Why Judy? Because this man, Franz Kintner, has supplied the OSS with the only lead they have: a request for a picture of Judy, mailed in 1940. They know he’ll surface if twenty-one year old Judy is the bait.” (March 2012)
