What about the Smithsonian? Or Dollywood? It seems a shame to have the items just floating all over the place. Especially after Miss Reynolds did such a great job of bringing them together. If the moguls of MGM had had any sense, Universal Studios would have been MGM Studios first.

Poor Debbie. She has sure had her ups and downs with money and this collection. It was originally set to be housed at the extravagant building on Hollywood Blvd. the houses the Kodak Theater. They screwed around and treated her as if they were doing her a favor to accept it.
Why doesn't Speilberg or one of the other billionaires of movie town jump in and save this priceless mass of film memories?

Wake up dude, the young generation does not care about Judy garland or even know Debbie Reynolds unless they are over 50 or gay. All that stuff will be gathering dust in a storage area soon unless they display it at Leisure World or Ripples.
