Every Prop Has a Story
Props frequently play a starring role in TV and film. And when they do, collectors are happy to fork over big money for them. Naturally, the more valuable the items, the more attractive they become to thieves. While many of the more famous props that have been stolen or otherwise disappeared over the years were eventually found — including Dorothy's iconic dress from "The Wizard of Oz," which recently turned up after decades — the trail of a few has long since gone cold.
